Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month

The Arizona SHPO promotes the protection of the state's non-renewable cultural and heritage resources and public education and awareness, and is pleased to present a calendar of state-wide activities for Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month, a yearly event that occurs every March

While SHPO is not playing a coordinating role for Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month, our preservation partners continue to plan for a series of fun and informative tours, lectures and activities for the public. These events are programmed statewide and will take place between March 1st and March 31st, 2024. Please feel free to share the calendar of events broadly among your friends and colleagues.

The Archaeology Expo and corresponding month’s activities have always strived to promote an ethic of heritage stewardship among Arizona residents of all ages; however, a significant portion of our partner’s programs have been devoted to educating school aged children about the practice of archaeology as it relates to the conservation of the state’s cultural resources. As we move forward, SHPO plans to work with our partners to uncover additional grant support to develop an innovative educational program for Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month that will facilitate collaboration with our office, program partners and schools around the state to ensure that the educational foundations of the program are strengthened and that the various regional events are articulated with existing K-12 curriculum.

While we take this pause to vision and plan for a coordinated statewide curriculum of archaeological and heritage stewardship, we hope you will take the opportunity to participate in one or more of the 2024 Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month activities! We invite you to join us by providing your feedback on existing programming and thoughts on what future programming should look like.
