"At Bear Spirit Mountain recent discoveries include proof of the observance of Summer and Winter solstices, Sun effigies, Serpent Wall effigies, and other archaeological finds.  Each discovery lifts our spirits, energizes us and makes us proud of who we are, appreciative of our ancestors and those who are determined to preserve this heritage.  These individuals are Bear Spirit Mountains themselves. These dedicated individuals are making it possible for me and others to someday experience this spirit in person.  Thanks to them, that day may be soon.  May they continue to be spiritually blessed as they continue today discovering and preserving the spirits of yesterday."

Performed Electric Resistivity and Ground Penetrating Radar testing on two of the Ceremonial Circles, three of the Rock Mounds, and two of the Serpent Wall effigies.

 We also have performed testing on the Earthen Mound with conclusive results that it is a man-made burial mound.
