Four Corners Learning Expedition
September 18-25, 2021 (dependent on the nation’s recovery from COVID-19)
September 17-24, 2022

ASM Director Dr. Patrick D. Lyons and Associate Director Dr. James T. Watson are your personal guides through the Four Corners region. Learn what happened to the Ancestral Puebloans and how the ancient cultures of the Four Corners are related to the region’s extant Native peoples. Emphases are on ancient Puebloan peoples, ancient migration patterns, Hopi ancestors, and the modern-day Hopi. The places that will help bring these lessons to life include Wupatki National Monument, the Hopi Mesas, Navajo National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, Chaco Culture National Historical Park, and Kinishba Ruins. $2850 ASM members, $3050 non members. Email for full details.

Mysterious Mojave Learning Expedition
March 22-27, 2021 (dependent on the nation’s recovery from COVID-19)

Come and explore the mysteries of the Mojave Desert with us. Cold winters, hot summers, and less than 13 inches of rainfall a year mean that not much more than Joshua trees dot this stark landscape. Despite its inhospitable appearance, people have called this desert home since the arrival of humans in the Americas and continue to do so. Join us on this evocative trip into the deep past of northwestern Arizona and southern Nevada. Highlights include Oatman, AZ; Grapevine Canyon; petroglyphs at Valley of Fire State Park and Red Rock Canyon; a hard hat tour of Hoover Dam; the Mob Museum; and guided tours at Springs Preserve.  Your tour leaders are Dr. Michael M. Brescia and Dr. James T. Watson. $2400 ASM members, $2600 non members. Email for full details.
