Earth Calendar for August 15th and August 16th

Aug 15, 2014

When most people think about Native American stone tools, they usually think of arrowheads. Gary Argabright enjoys expanding people’s natural attraction to artifacts to include the immense breadth and diversity of stone tools crafted by Native Americans on Ohio lands.

Saturday, August 16th, 1:00 pm at Serpent Mound, Gary will discuss how many ancient tools and artifacts were used, and what they reveal about the people who used them. Gary’s observations come from a life time of study and are both stimulating and thought-provoking. In some cases he challenges conventional wisdom on how many of these tools may have been used. 

On display will be a large selection of prehistoric artifacts from Gary’s extensive collection which will aid in illustrating and documenting his teachings. The public is invited to bring any Native American artifacts they may have in their possession about which they wish to learn more. Information and registration online


On Our Calendar: Organizations and individuals are planting more trees thanks to the interest created by the Taking Root initiative. But has our planting enthusiasm caused us to overlook critical preparation efforts such as the control of invasive species? Green Umbrella's Land Management Team invites all land management pros and enthusiasts to a free "Invasive Plants: Research and Control" workshop on Thursday, September 4th, 9:30 am at Sharon Woods, Sharon Center.
