Heritage Monitoring Scouts (HMS Florida) is a public engagement program focused on tracking changes to archaeological sites at risk, particularly those impacted by climate change in the form of erosion and sea level rise. Join Florida Public Archaeology Network (FPAN) staff for this information session to learn how to become a heritage monitoring scout.We will talk about threats to archaeological sites, how to identify some common site types and artifacts, and the best way to record and monitor them. Following this introductory session, FPAN will organize a number of scout meet ups to visit sites by foot and canoe so that you can get involved and protect archaeological sites near you! This event is free and open to the public. For more information or to sign up, contact Rebecca O\'Sullivan at 813.396.2325 or email rosulliv@usf.edu
