UPDATE: Clark County Museum Administrator Mark Hall-Patton spoke to 13 Action News about the importance of preserving these items.

" We have to have a way of looking back at ourselves, " he said. "We have to understand ourselves."

Kary Nguyen dropped off several items at the museum Friday that he collected when cleaning up the site. He felt they should be kept some place safe. 

"It was really heavy for me, " Nguyen said. "It just seemed like it deserved more respect than that."
