Working with Scouts offers a great opportunity to introduce archaeology to young people. The GSAR is happy to participate in these programs and can arrange experience for individual scouts learning what archaeology is, how archaeologists work and information about past cultures. If you would like to learn more about these programs please contact the Executive Director, Clark Wernecke, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Girl Scouts USA and other programs have badges for “Citizen Scientist” and environmental projects that we would be happy to help with.
