Southern Data Sharing

October 15, 2021 - October 17, 2021



Date:  Saturday, October 16th 

Venue:   Joshua Tree National Park @ Cottonwood Campground & Amphitheater

Cost:  $30 Park entrance fee per vehicle (up to four people per vehicle or $12/person – we’re limited to 32 vehicles so let us know if you’re open to carpooling), otherwise, costs for 2 nights (Fri night/Sat night) camping and meals on the day of the event will be covered by the Society for California Archaeology.  *Students are not required to be current members of the SCA.   

Join the Society for California Archaeology as we gather (live and in person!) at Joshua Tree National Park for the 2021 Southern Data Sharing Meeting.  Joshua Tree National Park is a vast protected area in southern California. It’s beauty lies in rugged rock formations and stark desert landscapes. Named for the region’s twisted, bristled Joshua trees, the park straddles the cactus-dotted Colorado Desert and the Mojave Desert.

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, October 16th, 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 $30 National Park entrance fee per vehicle and RSVP as soon as possible to reserve your spot).  32 individual campsites are available.

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 Southern Data Sharing Meeting! 

Please contact SCA Southern Vice President Pattie Garcia to RSVP & to secure a group-camping spot, submit your paper, and for additional information or questions at gro.emohacsnull@eittaP.  The meeting itself is on Saturday.
