The Northwest Chapter
The Northwest Chapter was organized as a branch of the Iowa Archeological Society, and members are pledged to support and further the aims and purposes of the parent organization.
Our goals are to further archaeological knowledge and to gather, record, and publish information of all archaeological remains, whether they are sites, data, or artifacts, for the benefit of future generations of Iowans and scientists.
Meetings and Events
The Northwest Chapter meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. In addition to discussing upcoming events, these monthly meetings feature special activities, field trips, or presentations. These meetings are open to the public, so feel free to bring a friend!
