Faculty receives grant for natural resources project
Jack Ray, assistant director of the Center for Archeological Research at Missouri State University, was awarded a $16,920 grant for the Missouri Department of Natural Resources Van Meter quarry project from the Historic Preservation Fund through the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and Saline County, Mo.
This project’s primary purposes are to document and evaluate the extent of prehistoric Indian quarrying along the base of the Missouri River bluffs, to educate the public with respect to these unique resources and the need for their preservation, and to provide the Missouri Department of Natural Resources a better basis for management and interpretation of the cultural resources within Van Meter State Park.
The total costs of this project are $28,200. Sixty-percent ($16,920) of these costs were funded by Historic Preservation Fund with the remaining 40% (11,280) of the costs paid for out of pocket by the Center for Archeological Research.
For more information, contact Ray at (417) 836-4999.
