Ida B. Wells High School and the National Park Service are partnering for an archeology project at Sutro Heights. Continuing the work their classmates did a few years ago--sifting through soil for artifacts where Adolph Sutro's house once stood--this year's seniors are now excavating the area where Sutro's staff lived. The students' work will become part of the historic information the National Park Service is developing about the Land's End community in the late 19th century. The project is part of the National Park Foundation's Park Stewards program, which works with high schools to encourage a deeper connection and sense of stewardship for their national parks through service learning projects that align with state academic standards. Included in the numerous artifacts the group found were a Japanese Meiji era silver coin dating back to the late 1800's, pottery, a medicine bottle, the sole of a shoe, animal bones and, though not confirmed, what looked to be a fossilized skull fragment.
