Elden Pueblo Program Information

Elden Pueblo Archaeology Project logo

The Elden Pueblo Project is a cooperative endeavor between the Coconino National Forest, the Arizona Natural History Association, and the Arizona Archaeological Society to provide educational opportunities in archaeology. Elden Pueblo is a 60-80 room pueblo of the prehistoric Sinagua culture and a Hopi ancestral site. The site of Elden Pueblo is open to the public and is located one mile north of the Flagstaff Mall on U.S. Highway 89. 

The following archaeological programs provide hands-on mapping, excavation, laboratory, and analytical experiences for participants under professional supervision.  Through these personal experiences, participants are made aware of archaeological concepts, values, laws and practices.  Join us in our quest to learn about past and present Pueblo cultures by investigating the clues people left behind.


  • Elden Pueblo Program, Summer 2019: Join in archaeological stewardship activities throughout the Forest.
  • School Programs, 2019: History, environment, and stewardship programs geared for 4th grade through high school.
  • Walk Through History, 2019: Half-day (4-hour) program investigates human culture, in relation to the environment; historic land use is studied, with an eye toward establishing future “best practices” through a thought-provoking study of conservation stewardship.
