53rd Annual Effigy Mounds Winter Film Festival ~ America's Stone Age Explorers
Who were the first Americans and where did they come from? The conventional view is that they arrive here around 13,500 years ago, but startling new archaeological discoveries suggest it may have been long before that. And experts are testing contentious theories regarding how they got here, including the idea of a dangerous canoe-born voyage from Asia down the west coast of the Americas, or even across the Atlantic from Europe. Display by Albert LeBeau and East, West & Waterville Elementary - teacher Carlyn Lehtenberg. The visitor center is open daily all winter from 8:30am to 4:30pm and the trails are open. For more information on the annual film festival and other upcoming events, please call the visitor center at 563.873.3491, ext. 202. Effigy Mounds National Monument's Visitor Center is located three miles north of Marquette, IA and 22 miles south of Waukon, IA on HWY 76.
