An increasing number of adult travelers are looking to vacation time not only as an occasion to relax and regenerate, but as an opportunity to learn. With a 30-year history of providing hands-on educational experiences to the public, the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center near Cortez, Colo., has expanded its adult programs to meet this demand.
Crow Canyon invites visitors to join its archaeologists for excavations, lab work, or experimental artifact replication as they explore the 1,500-year-old history of the ancestral Pueblo people in the Southwest. The Center offers three programs for adults: the Archaeology Research Program, the Archaeology Research Seminar and the Archaeology Lab Program. All programs take place at the center’s campus, surrounded by the scenery of the Ute Mountains and southwestern Colorado.
