The Gila Forks Archaeological Project requires 2 or 3 volunteers for a
3 week survey in the vicinity of the Gila Cliff Dwellings, Gila National
Forest, New Mexico. A *PER DIEM* of $17. will be paid. Comfortable
residential facilities will be provided (hot running water, refrigerator,
showers, relaxation space etc.). Participants must provide their own
transportation to the base camp near the Gila Cliff Dwellings Interpretive
Center. (Interested parties will recieve directions from the project

The project will run June 25-July 15, with weekends "off." The survey
area is in the rugged Mogollon uplands in the Wilderness Ranger District
of the Gila Forest. Elevations are higher than 1 mile. Daytime high
temperatures often exceed 90 F, but the air is dry and the nights are
cool. The terrain is extremely scenic, wildlife is abundant, and there are
a number of natural hot springs in the area.
Volunteers should be adults (over 18), in good physical condition, and
presently enrolled in a degree granting course of study at any level in
an accredited college or university. Volunteers will recieve training in
basic archaeological survey techniques, ceramic identification, research
design, and local prehistory. Ability to read a map and use a compass is
very helpful.
