Although, I have lived my whole life in the Midwest it wasn’t until my twenties that I learned about the prehistory of the region. Over the years I have begun visiting as many sites as possible but saddened to see many sites undeveloped or non accessible to the public. I have done limited volunteer work with Passport In Time working at Shawnee National Forest in Illinois. I hope to do more in the future. My goal is to share my passion with others for this region and the history it contains.
