Weekend of archeological events leads full September schedule

ANDERSON, Ind. — The leaves are just starting to turn. Birds are on the move. It’s a super time to get outdoors, and Mounds State Park in Anderson makes a great place in which to enjoy it.

In addition to the Visitor Center’s interesting displays, walking trails and camping opportunities, the historic Bronnenberg House is open every weekend from 1 to 4 p.m. On top of that, the park has a full slate of fun activities for kids and adults all through the month of September, kicking off with Archeology Weekend starting today. Here’s what’s happening this month:

Today, at 8 p.m., check out park artifacts on display at the campground.

Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Ball State University students and members of the Upper White River Archeological Society will have artifacts on hand, and the stories to go with them. There will be hands-on activities for kids. Create an archeology-themed craft with guest interpreter Kim Ousley. At 1 p.m., join the naturalist for an hour-long ArcheHike to the park’s most famous mound to learn about some of the past archeological findings that have revealed stories about the Adena-Hopewell peoples.

Also on Saturday, from 12-8 p.m., the Madison County Amateur Radio Club will be at the park to participate in Indiana Parks on the Air. Learn about amateur radio and get on the air yourself to talk to radio operators at other Department of Natural Resources properties during the statewide event.

Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Ball State University students and members of the Upper White River Archeological Society return with artifacts on hand, and the stories to go with them. Kids can get in on hands-on activities. At 1 p.m., join the naturalist for an hour-long ArcheHike to the park’s most famous mound to learn about some of the past archeological findings that have revealed stories about the Adena-Hopewell peoples.
