Mission Statement

The CDAS mission is to assist California State Park archaeologists with the documentation, preservation, and protection of prehistoric and historic cultural resources in the Anza-Borrego, Palomar Mountain and Rancho Cuyamaca State Parks.

Description

The Colorado Desert Archaeology Society is a group of volunteers that assists the staff of the Colorado Desert District of the California Department of Parks and Recreation in the documentation, preservation, and protection of cultural resources. Volunteers participate in a comprehensive Certification Training Program that teaches the ethics, goals, and methods of archaeological investigation. The program consists of a series of lectures, workshops, and fieldwork wherein the members develop their archaeological skills. The following are some of the tasks performed by our volunteers:

Survey to locate, map and record cultural resource sites.

Catalog and maintain the district cultural resource research archive and artifact collections.

Update field documentation for previously recorded sites.

Implement site interpretation and public outreach activities to educate the public about the value of cultural resources.
