> Education

GCAS volunteers offer regular indoor and outdoor tours open to the general public, as well as frequently providing educational programs to local schoolchildren throughout the county. All visitors learn the history and prehistory of the Mattocks Ruin at the Mimbres Culture Heritage Site, and in the process they sometimes even discover how deeply their own family's roots go in the area!
