The Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation stewards the past and present of the Presidio Neighborhood and inspires preservation advocacy throughout the County in order to create a more vibrant community.
Discover Santa Barbara this summer by excavating the Spanish fort founded in 1782. Learn how archaeologists study and interpret clues to reconstruct the history of Santa Barbara. Participants will receive instruction from archaeologists on basic excavation techniques, artifact processing methods, artifact identification, archaeological drawing, and mapping. At the end of the week, participants will have a better understanding of how information is recovered and maintained so that it can be used to reconstruct the past. This camp is for ages 10-15 years old.
