Archeology Month

May is Wisconsin’s Archeology Month, check out our display of books about archeology and archeology sites across the world. Did you know Sauk County has three unique sites, Yellow Thunder Memorial, Man Mound and the Hulbert Creek Garden Beds? The garden beds are located at the corner of County Road H and Birchwood Road. The site is three acres of approximately 1,000 year old Native American raised bed gardens. This site is managed by Sauk County Historical Society’s Archeological Committee which is chaired by Rob Nurre. Rob will be discussing this site and how the Native Americans grew their food here on Tuesday, August 17th. This program is just one of the many in partnership with the Worm Farm and in celebration of Smithsonian Key Ingredients program coming in October.
