OPAC HQFor those unfamiliar with Old Pueblo Archaeology Center [photo on right via OPAC], it is an organization headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, devoted to education and preservation of historic and archaeological sites and artifacts throughout the region of the US Southwest and Mexico Northwest. They serve as a clearinghouse for events, tours, educational programs, and volunteer opportunities for individuals including students of all ages, professionals, and interested nonprofessionals.

OPAC-Cave-Creek-CanyonEarly next year, Old Pueblo will present a day trip that may be of particular interest to those of us in the Grant County, New Mexico area. Their "Cave Creek Canyon Pictographs Tour" will happen on January 25, 2020, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The trip will be led by archaeologist Kelsey Hanson starting at the Chiricahua Desert Museum located at the US-80 & NM-533 (Portal Road) junction in Rodeo, New Mexico.

There is a $45 requested donation ($36 for Old Pueblo Archaeology Center and Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary members). Registrants have the option of visiting the Chiricahua Desert Museum on their own and at their own expense if they arrive early (the museum opens at 9) but they need to be ready to go on the tour promptly at 10:00 AM.

As with many Old Pueblo excursions, this is a tour that seems to be filling up quickly so you may want to act ASAP.  You can visit Old Pueblo's page for this Cave Creek Canyon tour for registration information and further details. For other Old Pueblo tours and events to entice you, visit their Upcoming Activities page. Let's go!
