Anthropology Class visits petroglyph

On September 28th, the BLM's Pocatello Field Office staff hosted students from Century High School's Anthropology course, which is also an early college program through Idaho State University. The field trip took place on a beautiful fall day at the petroglyph boulder display in the Indian Rocks Area of Critical Environmental Concern, where the students learned how to document an archaeological site in the field. Century teacher Erin Martin joined BLM staff including archaeologist Amy Lapp, and geographic information system specialist Brian Holmes to teach the students about filling out site forms, photographing the site, using GPS, and making feature and site sketches.
