In the spring of 2015. I had agreed to run a training session to teach interested individuals the methods we had developed since the late 1980s for making maps of Indian mounds and related organized rocks. (See Annex B ). The session was for interested members of the Ancient Earthworks Society (AES) of Madison and the Mid-America Geographic Foundation (MAGF), based out of Fond du Lac. Wisconsin. David Stetter and Glen Oechsner from MAGF chose the Kolterman Site, east of Waupun, Wisconsin, for the training site because it was easily accessible, and had both large round mounds and subtle effigy mounds. It also had an impressive array of seemingly organized rocks associated with the mounds. The site is located across the Horicon Marsh from Waupun, Wisc. See Figure 1. The land is Owned by the Audubon Society, and James Uhrinak, Secretary of the Milwaukee Audubon Society, was in control of the site where the mounds are located.
