In conjunction with Secretary Jewell’s Play, Learn, Serve and Work Initiative, the Bureau of Land Management’s Oklahoma Field Office in Tulsa, Oklahoma has vastly expanded its archaeological outreach program by conducting several events in rural and underprivileged areas throughout Oklahoma and Texas. Hundreds of school children and adults have participated in lively, outdoor, hands-on archaeological adventure lessons. Adventure lesson programs focused on interactive demonstrations of prehistoric hunting techniques, archaeological site stewardship, and developing student’s critical thinking skills by allowing them to develop interpretations of past lifeways through direct contact with artifacts from history.
The BLM in Oklahoma is proud to have partnered with Project Archaeology. This partnership marks the first occasion Project Archaeology has been represented in the state of Oklahoma. We are very excited to be conducting Oklahoma’s first every Project Archaeology teacher workshop this year. Since announcing our workshop, we have seen a flood of interest from educators and professional groups. In the coming years, we will be planning many, many more Project Archaeology teacher workshops.
