Her presentation, "The Recent ‘Magic’ of Loess Hills Archaeology," begins at 7:30 p.m. at West Monona High School in Onawa as part of a weekend event.
The Loess Hills Prairie Seminar brings together dozens of facilitators and hundreds of participants of all ages, with diverse interests that relate to natural and cultural history, the Loess Hills, and prairie. This year’s theme is the Loess Hills and Iowa: Past and Present. Field sessions begin at the Loess Hills Wildlife Management Area northeast of Onawa and run all day on Saturday, June 1, and on Sunday morning, June 2. More than forty sessions are offered.
