Upcoming ACZ Workshop (2016)

It’s that time of year again! The Alaska Consortium of Zooarchaeologists will be holding its annual Workshop at the Alaska Anthropological Association’s Meeting in Sitka, Alaska on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016.

This year the guest speaker is Dr. Douglas Causey, Professor of Biological Studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Dr. Causey will be presenting on the identification of Arctic bird species. NPR Weekend Edition interviewed him last fall about seabirds and global warming.
