    October Is Massachusetts Archaeology Month - From October 16-17, in celebration of Massachusetts Archaeology Month, the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources (BUAR) will participate in the Archaeological Institute of America’s Archaeology Fair at the Boston Museum of Science. The fair is directed to school groups on Friday, October 16, and families/general public on Saturday, October 17. BUAR activities include participation in a mock “dig” of a shipwreck and exhibits.

    Sign Up for COASTSWEEP 2015 - COASTSWEEP, the annual state-wide beach cleanup sponsored by CZM, will kick off its 28th year in September. Volunteers throughout Massachusetts turn out in large numbers each year for this event, which is part of an international campaign organized by the Ocean Conservancy in Washington, DC. Participants all over the world collect marine debris and record what they find. This information is then used to help reduce future marine debris problems. Cleanups will be scheduled through mid-November. To get involved, see the COASTSWEEP website or check out COASTSWEEP on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
