RECREATION | Family Archaeology Weekend 

We've still got some beautiful weather left in the season, which is good news for this weekend's outdoor Family Archaeology Weekend at Rochester Museum and Science Center's Cumming Nature Center. The outdoor event features a hands-on, guided excavation of an 18th-century farmhouse foundation. Part of the nature center's property today, the Hall Homestead dig site is located in what was known as Frost Town, a pioneer logging settlement with roots that can be traced back to 1790. Citizen scientists of all ages can take part in meaningful research at various stations to experientially learn archaeological disciplines, excavation techniques, and artifact dating. An on-hand team will also interpret items previously found by students working at the site.

Archaeology Weekend takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 15 and 16, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Cumming Nature Center, 6472 Gulick Road, Naples. Event admittance is $25 per families or $10 per person, and pre-registration is recommended. Children must have adult supervision. Families are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the miles of CNC nature trails. 697-1944;
