    Trip leader: Meg Van Ness, Archaeologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

    We will visit the Scott Miller Site, located on the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge (weather permitting). This site is usually closed to the public and contains hundreds of cultural artifacts going back more than 10,000 years. Artifacts that span from the Paleoindians (the first well-documented humans in North America), all the way to a historic homestead on the site have been discovered. Bones of extinct Pleistocene Megafauna (the Ice Age giants) such as Mammoths, Camels, Horses, and Bison have also been found.

    8:45am - Meet at MV Refuge office (6 miles south of the town of MV on HWY 15) so we can carpool to the site.  The tour will go for about 2 hours. There will be about 1 to 1.5 miles of walking over rough mostly level ground. Please bring warm clothes, water, snacks, hats etc.  If it rains we may have to cancel.
