Mission Garden Archaeology Day

September 24, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm


Free with a $5 suggested donation at the garden entrance.

On September 24, Mission Garden will inaugurate this fall's interactive Archaeology Days, taking place each fourth Saturday of the month through spring.

Fourth Saturday Archaeology Days are an expansion of the Hands-on Archaeology programs at Mission Garden in past years.

This season will be led by Allen Denoyer of Archaeology Southwest. This program allows kids of all ages to try out fascinating ancient technologies. It might be etching shell or painting with natural pigments or throwing spears with atl-atls.

Old Pueblo Archaeology Center will also be represented on these fourth Saturday events, presenting interactive programs about things like pinch pots, pendants, cordage, and petroglyphs.

John Palacio, a local rock art expert, will be joining this event as well. He does rock art reproductions in an attempt to promote conservation of historic sites with petroglyphs and pictographs.
