Join the Society for California Archaeology as we gather (live and in person!) at Calaveras Big Trees State Park for the 2021 Northern Data Sharing Meeting. Located 100-miles southeast of Sacramento near Arnold in Calaveras County, the Park is within the ancestral territory and home of the Miwok and features the awe-inspiring colossal Giant Sequoias (Sequoiadendron giganteum), the world’s most massive tree.
The meeting will be an informal event with a relaxed and supportive atmosphere—perfect for students to practice presenting as well as an opportunity to meet and talk with professionals in California Archaeology in a fun and casual setting. Students are not required to be current SCA members.
The meeting will begin around 10am on Saturday, September 25th, and end in the late afternoon/early evening with BBQ dinner to follow. Group camping is available courtesy of the SCA for both Friday and Saturday evenings (pay only a $10 State Park entrance fee per vehicle and RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your spot). Individual campsites and a small number of cabins are also available, make online reservations at reservercalifornia.com. Several lodges, inns, and private rentals are also available in nearby Arnold, Murphys, and Angels Camp.
Nearby restaurants include El Vaquero Mexican Restaurant, Dogwood Restaurant, Sarafina’s Italian Kitchen, and others. I highly recommend Snowshoe Brewing Company, less than 5-miles away for great food and craft beer.
So come and present your current research, meet fellow students and professionals in the field of California Archaeology, share some tasty BBQ and a cold beverage at the 2021 Northern Data Sharing Meeting!
Please contact SCA Northern Vice President Brendon Greenaway to RSVP & to secure a group-camping spot, submit your paper, and for additional information or questions at gro.emohacsnull@nodnerb
