Volunteer Opportunities!

IMG_0348One of the GCAS's core missions is to preserve and protect archaeological resources through education. Now that school is back in session, several groups of local students and their teachers are planning field trips to the Mimbres Culture Heritage Site. The GCAS has traditionally provided volunteer guides for these field trips, coordinated by our very own Marilyn Markel.

Three schools are planning field trips between the date of this post and November 8, 2019. We need GCAS members to take time to assist Marilyn in showing these young students some of the rich heritage that their area offers them. Bonus: no experience is necessary for any of these field trips; Marilyn will quickly get you up to speed. Please help with one or more:
