Japanese Gulch artifacts’ discussion to be held Dec. 6
Join Thomas Murphy, Emily Scott and selected students from the Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field School (LEAF) as they discuss artifacts they have collected as part of the Japanese Gulch excavation.
The LEAF School participated in an archaeological field school in Japanese Gulch during the summer of 2012.
Students and their instructors who participated in the excavation will draw upon the artifacts that they have collected to help tell the story of an early 20th-century Japanese American community located near the Mukilteo waterfront.
The presentation is free and will be held in the Everett Music Project Theater located in the Everett Mall at 7 p.m. Dec. 6.
The LEAF School began at Edmonds Community College in April 2006 and expanded to Everett Community College in July 2012.
The mission of the LEAF School is to combine traditional ecological knowledge and citizen science to make communities more sustainable.
Students participate in hands-on, service-learning projects in local communities while earning credit in a series of courses in archaeology and human ecology. To learn more visit: www.edcc.edu/leaf.
The lecture is presented by the Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission.
