Type of Event: Education
Red Mountain Open Space

The Center for Mountain and Plains Archaeology (CMPA-CSU) would like to lead a tour to the Line Shack Draw archaeological site (5LR110), located on Red Mountain Open Space. CSU conducted research at the site in the mid 1970s, in 2006, 2009, and 2011. Mr. Michael Troyer (MA Candidate, CSU) would lead the tour under the supervision of Dr. Jason LaBelle.

The tour partcipants would be members of the Plains Anthropological Society and/or Colorado Archaeological Society. The CMPA is hosting the 71st meeting of the Plains Conference from Oct 2-6, at the Embassy Suites in Loveland. We expect ~400-450 archaeologists to attend the conference. This tour would be very well attended (but capped at 30), and a real way to showcase RMOS, Larimer County Parks and Open Spaces, and the work that CSU has completed thus far at the site.

The tour would be on-trail, leaving the parking lot and walking to the K-Lynn Cameron and Stone Circle trails, that go through the 5LR110 site. Once on site, tour guests would be led to various parts of the site and the archaeological research would be discusses.

The tour would last from ~9 am to 1 pm, which allows for about 1 hour walk each way, and then 2 hours on the site itself. The tour size is larger than 12 heartbeats, but I hope that the time of year (early Oct, and so not at the height of park use) and the one-time nature of the visit (to showcase RMOS archaeology) can help in making an exception. As well, the tour will be on-trail and cause little natural disturbance. We very much appreciate the consideration of our request.
