ASCO: The Archaeological Society of Central Oregon is a nonprofit organization and was formed in January 1994. Current membership is over 100 individuals. Our primary goals are to stimulate public interest in the professional management of our archaeological resources and to preserve and study our past ways of life. Society members believe that through their participation they can help conserve and bring to life many of the vanishing pages of history for future generations.
General Meetings: Bimonthly meetings for members and visitors are held on the 3rd Thursday of alternate months from September through May. Meetings are meant to be both educational and entertaining and give opportunities for people with common interests to get acquainted. Due to COVID-related closures, all meetings will be held via Zoom Video Conference until further notice.
Board Meetings: Board Meetings are generally held on the 1st Tuesday of the month. Please, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend.
Newsletter: We publish a periodic newsletter, The e-Midden , which contains schedules of all society activities and other articles.
