At the “Site Visit with a Site Steward” event, archaeological site stewards will be posted at Wolfe Ranch and the Ute Panel archaeological sites near the Delicate Arch trailhead and at the Courthouse Wash rock art panel in Arches National Park. On BLM lands, site stewards will be at Sego Canyon rock art, Moonflower Canyon, and at the rock art panels along Potash Road labeled “Indian Writing.” The site stewards will talk about the archaeological sites they monitor, and their roles as citizen scientists for the National Park Service and BLM. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
