Other Field School Offerings:
The Cave Reserve will also host visits by other college field school programs this summer, including the Cal State Long Beach Geospatial Sciences program, funded by a National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates grant.
The program will utilize high-tech unmanned aircraft and GIS software to map the Cave Reserve and other archaeological and restoration sites. The cave will also host returning programs from past years, including groups from Campbell University and Cal Poly, which will also participate in excavation and restoration activity.
