Archaeology Stewardship Day

Bring yourself, bring your family, bring your dog, and cruise down to one of the best public archaeology events in Utah! Designed as a driving tour, you can cruise through the canyon at your own pace stopping at designated archaeological sites. Each site will have a professional archaeological site host paired with our student stewards. These students have been through the Project Discovery education program and this is their opportunity to share their knowledge with you. By pulling back the veil of secrecy and not only showing, but educating you about these precious and irreplaceable archaeological sites - we hope you'll walk away more enlightened, with a better understanding of why these sites are important, and why they should be protected and preserved for future generations.

6th Annual Day of the Dead

The Sharing Place's Day of the Dead is not your average fundraising gala. Guests have the opportunity to get sugar skull face paint, visit psychic readers, honor a loved one at our memorial altar, and enjoy a delicious dinner from Red Iguana. This unique event is a celebration of life and remembrance as much as a fundraiser. All funds from sponsorships, ticket sales, and activities will benefit grief groups at The Sharing Place and in the community. Last year, these groups helped over 500 children across the state of Utah process feelings surrounding the death of a family member through art, discussion, and play. Established in 1993, our program was one of the first of its kind in the US and has served thousands of children since. Sponsorships begin at $500. Please contact dlankford@thesharingplace.com if your family or company is interested in sponsoring this event. Individual tickets will sell for $50.
