WILLOWS, Calif.; June 22, 2017 – Mendocino National Forest employees, volunteers and Native American tribal members will embark on a Passport in Time (PIT) project to conduct archaeological surveys in the Snow Mountain Wilderness starting Monday, June 26. The project will last a week and involves an area that lies within a portion of the Berryessa Snow Mountain National Monument (Monument).  

Survey data will help the Forest manage and protect any archaeological sites encountered during these surveys and will contribute to the development of the management plan for the Monument. Mike Dugas, forest heritage program manager, says, “We are looking forward to next week. This is a great opportunity for the heritage department, PIT volunteers and Tribal representatives to complete archaeological surveys and share cultural knowledge in an effort to better understand past land uses.” Dugas adds, “Participation by tribal members enhances the public’s educational experience through the sharing of traditional and cultural information.”

The goal of PIT is to preserve the nation’s past with the help of the public. More information about the PIT program is available at http://www.passportintime.com/
