2008 Archaeofest Held at Brushy Lake Recreation Area

Archaeofest is held in the Bankhead National Forest every two years. Jean Allan, the district archeologist, started the event in 2002. This year, about 300 people attended the event that features exhibits about Native Americans, early European settlers, and the importance of preserving archaeological sites. It is a family-friendly event that has many youth focused activities. The user fees for visitors at Brushy Lake Recreation Area were waived as part of the Public Lands Day event.
