Grant County Archaeological Society

Our Purpose

The Grant County Archaeological Society is a local not-for-profit organization devoted to increasing and dispersing knowledge and appreciation of all cultural subjects.  To that end, we work to assist and support museums; to preserve places and objects of cultural interest; to protect historic and prehistoric sites, works of art, scenic places, natural monuments, artifacts and wildlife from needless destruction.  We offer popular instruction and opportunities for personal growth.  GCAS proposes to foster increased co-operation among governmental agencies, authorities, professional archaeological commissions, amateur archaeologists, individuals, museums, and educational institutions.

Towards all that

The Grant County Archaeological Society meets regularly on the third Wednesday of the month for business followed by a program.  Meetings are held at the Woman's Club in Silver City from October until March.  During the remaining months, Pot Luck dinners precede the meeting, held at a variety of locations.   These meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend.  Field trips are scheduled for members and invited guests, usually, on the first Sunday of the month.  Most field trips are within Grant, Luna, Catron County area; and once a year we try to schedule a weekend trip to more distant locations.   Many of our members assist with educational programs for area schools.  We encourage members to receive training and participate in the New Mexico Site Watch Program.
