Coronado State Monument Project July 20/21

Return with us on July 20 to this scenic spot overlooking the Rio Grande to build adobe walls marking the outline of unexcavated kivas. We will need three crews working concurrently throughout the day Saturday. One crew will run the mixer and supply mortar to a second crew of wall builders. The third crew will groom the trail we built along the river in 2010 and extend that trail up the river to a new overlook. Our sponsor, Scott Smith, will jump start us with coffee and pastries in the morning and reinvigorate us with pizza at noon. Sunday morning will be optional depending on our Saturday accomplishments and your interest in devoting another half day to this project

This being a "Family Friendly" project, we will have a special program for youngsters 8-14 years of age who want to plaster adobe walls and take a Ranger-guided field trip within the boundaries of this beautiful state monument.

Volunteers from outside the Albuquerque area, and anyone looking for an excuse to camp in a beautiful place, may pitch a tent in the north campsite of the Coronado Campground. The project will be any easy stroll from your campsite in the morning.

Meet us between 8:00 and 8:30 at Coronado State Monument. Coffee will be served on the south veranda of the museum where crew leaders will be designated and work assignments made. To get to Coronado State Monument, travel north on NM 550 through the town of Bernalillo, cross the Rio Grande, pass the abandoned Jackalope trading post, and look for the well-marked right turn. Once in the parking lot, follow the signs to the museum.

Sorry, but no dogs please. We can’t have them on the project, and there is no shade in the parking lot. Couples who are camping in the adjacent campground are welcome to split up while one tends the dog and the other plays in the mud.

Please contact Project Leader Ken Levan [masked] or [masked]) to get on my "quick contact" list and be included in the total volunteer count.
