Archeology Survey Volunteers Needed

This spring, the National Park Service will conduct a prescribed burn near Bass Lake in Benzie County sometime between April 25th and May 25th, depending on weather. Prior to the burn, we will be conducting an archaeological survey in the burn site to locate any prehistoric or historic artifacts. This survey will be led by Dr. Ashley Barnett from the Midwest Archaeological Center (NPS). A small team will be working with Ashley, and they would like one volunteer to assist each of the following days: April 10 – 13 and April 16 – 20. The work will begin about 8:30 AM and go until 4:00 PM, so plan to bring a lunch and water.

This is a great opportunity to get out into the wilderness and participate in prep work prior to the park’s first-ever prescribed burn.
