Garbology 101 is moving to the newly renovated Presidio Officers’ Club.

A great deal can be learned about different cultures by studying the trash they leave behind. Students learn how Presidio archaeologists uncover the past by studying artifacts from Ohlone Indians, Spaniards, Mexicans, and Americans who lived and worked in the area.

Through hands-on activities using replicas of artifacts recovered from Crissy Field landfill, students build an understanding of how people interacted with their surroundings and consider current impacts and alternatives to their own garbage.

Garbology 101 is a partnership between the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service and is being re-designed with its new location in mind. Be part of the re-design team; participation is free. Space is limited.

3 hours, Grades 4-6
