“Third Thursday Food for Thought”
April 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, April 20, 2017, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” dinner will feature the presentation “Footprints along the Santa Cruz: 3,000 Years of Farming Where the Rillito Meets the River” by archaeologist Suzanne Griset in the Dining Hall and Petroglyph Auditorium of the Picture Rocks Redemptorist Renewal Center (PRRNC), 7101 W. Picture Rocks Road, Tucson, from 6 to 8:30 pm. The fee is $15 per person. Dr. Suzanne Griset, SWCA Environmental Consultants’ Principal Investigator for the Sunset Road archaeological excavations, will discuss the finding of footprints in an Early Agricultural period irrigated field. The footprints represent seven adults, a juvenile, a toddler, and a dog, and show how the likely family unit irrigated their fields along the banks of the Santa Cruz River. She will also discuss other findings from the project and how they fit or add to Tucson Basin archaeology.
For this one-time event the dinner fee is $15 per person payable to Old Pueblo Archaeology Center by check or credit/debit card no later than 5 p.m. Tuesday April 18, so that Old Pueblo can tell the PRRNC on April 19 how many people will attend. Donations will be requested during the event to benefit Old Pueblo’s educational efforts. Call Old Pueblo at 520-798-1201 no later than 5 p.m. April 18 to make reservations and pay for dinner.
