The San Juan Basin Archaeological Society (SJBAS) is a Colorado Nonprofit Corporation. SJBAS consists of people who are interested in the archaeology, culture and early history of the Four Corners region. We have members of all ages and backgrounds, some with extensive training in archaeology and others with more limited knowledge, but a strong desire to learn.
Our mission is to advocate for and promote public awareness and preservation of archaeological, cultural, and historical resources, primarily of the Four Corners region of the American Southwest.
Membership is open to any individual interested in the archaeology, culture and history of the Four Corners region. It is easy to join SJBAS – follow this link to the Membership Application.
The SJBAS meets regularly on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. usually in the Lyceum in the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado. Meetings are highlighted by presentations on some phase of archaeology or a historical subject. We welcome and encourage visitors and non-members to attend.
Members are eligible to participate in SJBAS field trips. They receive a monthly newsletter, the Moki Messenger, with information about current SJBAS activities and other matters of archaeological and historical interest.
