NEXT MEETING: Wednesday, June 19, 2024, 6:00PM: members and non-members are welcome to the GCAS monthly meeting at the Roundup Lodge in San Lorenzo (Mimbres Valley). We start at 6PM with a potluck - bring your own plates & utensils, and a dish for yourself or to share with the group. At about 6:30PM we will have a brief business meeting followed immediately by our featured speaker, GCAS president Marianne Smith, who will discuss Images in Mimbres Pottery - Plainware to Classic. Consider some of the assumptions people make when trying to interpret Mimbres pottery and explore similarities in modern imagery. In order to offer our members a safe and comfortable experience at our in-person meetings the GCAS follows CDC and New Mexico Department of Health guidelines for indoor gatherings including masking, distancing, and vaccinations. We recommend each attendee take the precautions they feel are appropriate for themselves.

NEXT FIELD TRIP: SATURDAY, June 1, 2024, 12:00PM noon-4:00PM, Gough Park in Silver City: join the fun as the GCAS shifts our usual "first Sunday of the month" field trip one day earlier to the first Saturday of June to celebrate the main event of the 2024 centennial of the Gila Wilderness. The US Forest Service Wilderness Ranger District is hosting this event to commemorate the vital partnerships throughout the community that have contributed to the preservation of the Gila Wilderness over the past century. The GCAS is one among many such community organizations that will have a booth in Gough Park to showcase how people working together have preserved the world's first designated wilderness - a wilderness in our own back yard. Find out about this and more centennial events here.
