Archaeological Field School

At archaeological field school, students learn field methods used by archaeologists in industry, including survey, site recording and excavation. In 2024, students will participate in new mapping and testing of the Colby Mammoth site, a 12,800 year-old mammoth kill site in Big Horn Basin, Wyoming.

Walker Institute Speaker Series

Each year, the Olene S.

Support the Walker Institute's efforts to continue these events by donating to the Walker Institute Speaker Series.

Paleoenvironmental Laboratory

This new lab would provide opportunities for students to work with faculty to perform paleoclimate or paleoenvironmental research. This hands-on experience would give students a clear advantage when applying to graduate programs across the country. Donate to support the creation of this laboratory.
