Cottonwood, ID - Excavation work at Oregon State University’s (OSU) archaeology field school is once again underway for the season at Cooper’s Ferry in the Lower Salmon River Canyon. The field school is an ongoing cooperative effort between OSU and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Over the years, the BLM-managed site has hosted college students from across the U.S. who spend a portion of their summer conducting research on early human occupation of the river canyon.

The excavation site at Cooper’s Ferry offers a great opportunity to connect kids and adults to America’s natural and cultural heritage. During July, the public is invited to tour the site and learn more about the effort. Tours are available at no cost weekly Wednesday through Sunday, from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.

WASHINGTON – As Earth Day approaches, did you know USDA has an app that can help you save money and help the environment? Or that there are some simple steps you can take in the kitchen to help you serve safer food and to help you reduce resource use and utility bills? This spring, the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing food safety recommendations to help consumers reduce foodborne illness, resource use, and unnecessary spending for Earth Day.
