Yukon Conservation officers will be holding an evening lecture tomorrow at 6:30pm at the Yukon Beringia Centre regarding discovering and acting upon archaeological sites when they’re found in the Yukon wilderness.

Yukon Government Archaeologist Chris Thomas says there’s many things people can do when they discover an archaeological site in the territory.
