Today I renewed my membership in the Archaeological Conservancy. They are the only national non-profit organization dedicated to acquiring and preserving the best of our nation's remaining archaeological sites.
The conservancy sends out a pretty cool magazine four times a year on archaeology in the US. Its a pretty good read, I probably read over 80% of it. The magazine has inspired me, we took a trip to Mese Verde a few years back. Now that's an interesting place.
I think the real reason I support this charity is because I really do believe there are things we need to preserve in this country. And the Archaeological Conservancy. is one of the only places a US citizen can turn to if they need help preserving part of history. We have enough places to build condos in this country without putting them on top of sacred areas.
