‘Cultural Resources and Climate Change’ topic of next TU Science Café

Barbara Clark, a registered professional archaeologist and regional director of the Northwest and North Central Regional Centers of the Florida Public Archaeology Network, will present “Cultural Resources and Climate Change” at Thomas University’s next Science Café on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

Clark holds a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Florida State University and a master’s degree in Archaeology and Heritage from the University of Leicester. She is currently working on a second master’s degree in Public Administration through the University of West Florida.

Clark serves on the Board of Directors for the Register of Professional Archaeologists, the Florida Archaeological Council and the Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation. She is also a member of the Florida National Forests Resource Advisory Committee.

Clark’s professional interests include public archaeology, historical archaeology and developing partnerships for preservation through asset-based community development. She is also very involved in advocating for cultural resources protection at the state level and is the primary organizer for Florida Archaeology Day at the Capitol, held every year during the state legislative session.

The Florida Public Archaeology Network’s (FPAN) mission is to promote and facilitate the conservation, study and public understanding of Florida’s archaeological heritage through regional centers located throughout the state. FPAN approaches their mission by working in three core areas: public outreach, assistance to local governments and assistance to the Florida Division of Cultural Resources. FPAN was established in 2004 by an act of the state Legislature to establish a “Florida network of public archaeology centers to help stem the rapid deterioration of this state’s buried past and to expand public interest in archaeology.”

The Science Café will be held in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus. The event is free and open to the public. The event will begin with a reception featuring the guest speaker at 6 p.m. followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact April D. Penton at apenton@thomasu.edu.
