Collin Stewart of Carbondale has been awarded a BA degree from Whitworth University.

Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private, liberal arts university affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The university, which enrolls 2,700 students, offers more than 50 undergraduate and graduate programs.

Colorado Mountain College offers a guided field course to the archaeological ruins of Grand Gulch, a drainage emptying into the San Juan River west of Blanding, Utah.

This backcountry area contains petroglyphs and hundreds of archaeological sites, including cliff dwellings. Access can be gained only by permit.

Anthropologist/archaeologist Sandy Jackson and ecologist Dr. Jim Campbell will guide the trip, providing information about the inhabitants of the area and their use of the land. Pre-trip classes are held Saturdays, Oct. 2 and 9; the backpacking/camping excursion to Grand Gulch is Oct. 12-17.

The course is limited to 10 participants, so early registration is advised. For more information or to register, call the Lappala Center in Carbondale at 963-2172.
