Track the movements of water, plants, and ancient people.
The land isn't just where we live. It's part of who we are, informed by the passage of water, the growth of plants, and the people who shaped the land before us.
Discover magical places on these hikes and explore what the land has to say.
Our Homeschool Homestead Day is quite full but there's room for a few more! We are blessed with a special opportunity; a voice lesson from Felicia Ford! We will also show off our many seedlings, eat flowers from the greenhouse, and play with worms! RSVP please.
Galisteo Basin Archeology Hike
Sunday, April 10
1pm to 3pm
Have you heard about the massive pre-Columbian pueblos concentrated in the Galisteo Basin south of Santa Fe, NM and wondered where they got their start?
Right along the Turquoise Trail we have our own density of earlier sites – small fieldhouses, pueblos, petroglyphs, and artifact scatters – that help tell the story of the beginnings of settlement in the basin, and give clues about the early inhabitants.
Local archaeologist Tamara Stewart will lead a hike through the Ampersand property, where we will visit archaeological sites from this period and discuss the early days in the Galisteo Basin, how settlers utilized and moved across the landscape and how they made a living during this pre-Classic period.
$10 per adult. Attended kids welcome. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
