Glimpse Native American artifacts at PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands

February 4, 2011

PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands once again welcomes the Pennsylvania Indian Artifact Collectors Association and its annual artifact exhibit from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 26.

Local association members will display their collections of tools, weapons and trade items, and discuss the history and original use of the pieces. There will be flint-knapping demonstrations throughout the day and an atlatl (spear-thrower) exhibition, weather permitting. Visitors are encouraged to bring along artifacts they have found for identification.

For more information, contact association member Bill Vezendy at 570-759-1792.
For directions, please visit www.pplpreserves.com, click on “Susquehanna Riverlands” then select “Directions.”

The Susquehanna Riverlands, along Route 11 about seven miles north of Berwick, is operated by PPL in conjunction with its Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township. The preserve, encompassing 1,200 acres on both the east and west banks of the Susquehanna River, has been providing the residents of north central Pennsylvania with quality recreation, fishing and environmental education since 1980.
At our environmental preserves, PPL works to protect the land, care for endangered species and habitats, and provide public recreational facilities for people to learn about and enjoy nature’s beauty. For more information about PPL’s environmental preserves, visit www.pplpreserves.com.
