The Texas Archeology Society has released the 2022 schedule for their archeology events:
The 2021 award of the Council of Texas Archeologists' E. Mott Davis Award for Public Outreach goes to NTAS, our 25 volunteers, and key members: James E. Barrera, Dr. Catrina Banks Whitley, and James E. Everett for their hard work organizing volunteer activities at the Bolivar Archeological Project in Denton County, Texas.
From 2020-2021, NTAS coordinated with Doug Boyd and TxDoT to create volunteer opportunities at historic archeological sites of the Old American West. Public outreach and education is a core part of NTAS' mission. Volunteers worked with professional archeologists and even meet a descendant of an owner of one of the archeological sites.
NTAS is grateful for these opportunities, and we look forward to future collaborative events!
