[ARCHIVED] The Jemez Mountains - Geography Club at Branigan Cultural Center

Join the Branigan Cultural Center every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon as we encourage families to take a mental road trip to explore culturally significant and historical sites within the Land of Enchantment! Each month we will focus on one location of historic and cultural significance in New Mexico, discussing the people, landscape, and environment of the area. 

 For the month of April, we learn about the wondrous Jemez Mountains. Located approximately 330 miles north of Las Cruces, the Jemez Mountains were formed from once-active volcanoes! Don’t worry though, the last known eruption occurred about 60,000 years ago. Puebloan Indian tribes settled this region long before the Spanish arrived in New Mexico in 1598. Come by every Saturday in April and learn about the history and significance of the Jemez Mountains, with crafts and activities for children.

 Admission is free to the Branigan Cultural Center, located at 501 North Main Street. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For addition information call 575/541-2154.
