Arizona Archaeological Society



The Little Colorado River Chapter is located in Springerville, Arizona.  Formed in 2003, we are comprised of members from all parts of the Little Colorado River drainage area in Arizona.  The chapter is not connected to any one archaeological site but seeks to preserve, protect and appreciate archaeology in general.   The Chapter meets every 3rd Monday of the Month for a general meeting and speaker unless a field trip is planned.  Meetings are held at the Springerville Heritage Center, 418 E. Main Street in Springerville, AZ.  Call 928-551-4119 for more information.



June 15, 2015 7:00 pm  Public Welcome.  Free

          Springerville Heritage Center, 418 E. Main Street, 7:00PM

Speaker T.J. McMichael, Biologist

  Topic:  The  Ethnobotany of the Little Colorado area 

 The inhabitants of Casa Malapais did not have Safeway or Western Drug.  They had to rely on nature‚Äôs bounty for food, cures and materials and they were very resourceful.  Excavations have revealed what plants they had available and how they used them; but what did those plants look like.  T.J. has been working with plants for nearly 70 years.  He will show us what plants were used and how to identify them at various seasons.

T.J. is also a member of the LCRC.


  LCRC Members are invited to volunteer at the National Forest Supervisors Office where under the direction of archaeologist Ester Morgan we will help with whatever needs we are directed!  Notify Carol F, at if you want to help!
