Join SAR in a fascinating trip designed to appeal to those with a love of Southwestern history and archaeology and the wonders of nature. This two-day trip to the heartland of the Piro, features the work of one of the most renowned Piro scholars and archaeologists working in the area. We'll also see thousands of sandhill cranes and snow geese come and go in the early morning and early evening as they make their annual migration through Bosque del Apache. Starting with Sevilleta, we will visit some of the settlements and pueblos where archaeologists have been working, dig into the history of their occupation and desertion, and explore the place of the Piro in the larger context of Southwestern history. This is a great opportunity to learn about a little-discussed part of New Mexico's archaeology, and witness one of America’s great migratory spectacles.
