Can you dig it? Visitors unearth fun at Starve Hollow

Tribune photo by Aubrey Woods / Conservation Officer Phil Nale talks about his arrowhead collection with 7-year-old Olivia Clark and her parents, Melissa and James Clark, at the event. The Clarks, who live in Seymour, were staying in a family cabin at Starve Hollow.


Youngsters eagerly dug into history Sept. 28 at Starve Hollow State Recreation Area near Vallonia.

The annual Archaeology Day program drew both young and old to learn more about the subject through crafts and demonstrations.

It’s one of nearly a dozen special events planned at the center this year. The next occurs Oct. 19, when there will be a scarecrow-building contest and other activities.
