Presentation to offer a glimpse of Carnation’s prehistoric past
Carnation’s past will be revealed at an upcoming public presentation highlighting the cultural resources discovered during construction of the Carnation Treatment Plant.
Thursday, July 9
7 to 8 p.m.
Carnation Public Library
4804 Tolt Ave.
As required by State Environmental Policy Act, King County brought archeologists in during the treatment plant project to study the area and ensure the protection and preservation of culturally or historically significant resources.
The team unearthed prehistoric food remains and two multi-layer hearths that demonstrate a cultural connection to the ethnographic Snoqualmie people.
Information about the findings will be presented at the public presentation by Dr. Astrida R. Blukis Onat, an expert in Pacific Northwest cultural resources for more than 30 years.
The event is free, and all ages are welcome. For additional information, including arranging reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities, please call Jo Sullivan at 206-296-8361 or 711 TTY or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
