Living Archaeology Weekend (LAW) is a free, annual, two-day public outreach event (with Saturday open to the public) held at the Gladie Visitor Center in the Red River Gorge of the Daniel Boone National Forest in eastern Kentucky. One of few public archaeology education programs of its magnitude in Kentucky, LAW offers school children and the general public a variety of educational activities in American Indian and pioneer lifeways, archaeological interpretation, and site preservation. The program is delivered along the picturesque banks of Gladie Creek and Red River.
It’s time for our Annual Rehab Color Run. This event is a 5k walk/run. We have all age groups that participate. The date is September 22nd. We are asking that if possible you pre-register in order to guarantee yourself a T-Shirt. Registration is $20 for adults: $15 for kids and all proceeds will go to the resident Christmas Fund. This is always a fun event for everyone and the money is for a wonderful cause. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 606-668-3216.
2018 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and the 25th Anniversary of the Red River receiving the invaluable designation that put an end to the dam struggle that began in the 60s. This event is to celebrate this milestone for free-flowing Red River, one of our unique Kentucky treasures. The event benefits local non-profit watershed group, Friends of Red River, who works to clean up the Red River, educate the public about clean water, and create more access to the Red (restore, protect, and celebrate our waterways)!
