CALIFORNIA ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM (CASSP)Download the workshop announcement as a one-page PDF.
CASSP volunteer Beth Armstrong spoke during the opening plenary session of the 2023 SCA Annual Meeting.
CASSP is the California Archaeological Site Stewardship Program. It recruits and trains public volunteers to help protect archaeological and historical sites by making repeated visits to assigned sites and report on their conditions. Volunteer site stewards work under the supervision of the archaeologists who work at the land management agency where the sites are located.
