Service Learning at McElmo Canyon
The McElmo Canyon Research Institute's Artifact and Curation Program takes place at the Anasazi Heritage Center in Dolores, Colorado. After an intensive workshop in pottery identification from archaeologist, Jim Colleran, participants help inventory pot sherds collected during the Dolores Archaeological Program (1978-1983). In addition to compiling valuable information that is used to update the program's research database, participants update packaging materials, rehousing pottery sherds in modern, curatorial-grade polyethylene bags. To date, each group has inventoried over 5,000 artifacts during their fascinating service learning experience!
