Make a Donation to Living Archaeology Weekend
In addition to over $120,000 of in-kind support provided by the three organizing agencies, KyOPA, on behalf of the Living Archaeology Weekend Steering Committee, seeks cash contributions to deliver this important outreach program. About $12,000 in cash is needed to cover demonstrator fees and related expenses for the 2017 event. We are seeking contributions from archaeology contract firms, other businesses, professional and avocational organizations, foundations, and individuals. Donors also can elect to provide supplies or to provide staff to work as volunteers before, during, or after the event. All contributions are tax deductible to KyOPA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and 100% of cash contributions are used to finance Living Archaeology Weekend. All donors are recognized in printed and electronic publicity materials. Use the form below to make a contribution to Living Archaeology Weekend, or contact Darlene Applegate, KyOPA Living Archaeology Weekend Committee Chair. Thanks for your support!
Student visitors learn about bent pole structures, a form of housing used commonly by Native peoples in Kentucky and throughout the Eastern Woodlands. Visitors at LAW 2009 assisted in the construction of the wooden structure and the cattail mats used as wall coverings.
