Archaeology students present findings from Japanese Gulch

Thomas Murphy, Emily Scott and students from Edmonds Community College's Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field School (LEAF) will tell the story of artifacts that they collected and cataloged from Japanese Gulch in Mukilteo last summer.

Their presentation, "Voices From the Dirt: Japanese Gulch Artifacts," will be 7 p.m., Thurs., Dec. 6 at the Everett Music Project Theater located in the Everett Mall, 1402 SE Everett Mall Way #800, Everett, 98208.

The LEAF School began at Edmonds Community College in April 2006 and included Everett Community College in July 2012. The LEAF School combines traditional ecological knowledge and citizen science to help make our communities more sustainable. Students participate in hands-on service-learning projects in local communities while earning credit in a series of anthropology courses in archaeology and human ecology.

The lecture is presented by the Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission.

  1. Japanese Gulch Creek has a marvelous NW history and is a beautiful location with good trails for both walking and hiking. I had the privilege of photographing it extensively for an Everett Public Works' Urban Streams Calendar project — which featured historical writing on the streams by Everett's Historian/Liberian David Dilgard. If any additional photographs are needed for the presentation, I can contribute what I have on Japanese Gulch at:
