Montgomery Parks’ Archaeology Program identifies, manages, and interprets archaeological sites on parkland and considers the effects of land use decisions on cultural resources. Research and excavations contribute to interpretation, public education programs, restorations, and park development plans.
The program provides for the stewardship of non-renewable archaeological resources and an opportunity for public participation in discovering our past right in your backyard. Learn more below.
