Public invited to view dig site
An archeological “open house” is being hosted by Pend Oreille Public Utility District, Kalispel Tribe and the Colville National Forest.
Visitors interested in seeing the site should meet at the Panhandle Campground on the east side of the Pend Oreille River, 15 miles northwest of Newport, Wash., at 1 p.m. on June 14. Visitors will get a short briefing about the site before following the trip leader in their vehicles to the dig site where they can expect to view food processing ovens and other ancient features.
Visitors are asked not to take photos that would reveal the site’s exact location, or record the GPS coordinates.
For more information contact Mark Cauchy at Pend Oreille PUD at (509) 447-3137.
