Here at Coronado Historic Site, we are counting down the days until our archaeological dig begins! On Monday, May 15, the very first work will begin — not with gigantic holes but with staking off the sites and preparation work for the next weeks to come. Archaeology will be happening Monday through Friday, and the best times to come see what people are doing will be between 10:00 and 2:00.
Boy Scout Troop 9 from Los Ranchos de Albuquerque had a fun camping trip to Coronado Campgrounds, and then spent Saturday, May 6, touring and doing community service projects at Coronado Historic Site. Thank you guys for all your hard work and helping to preserve our state historic sites!
On April 23, 2017, friends and family celebrated the life of our beloved friend Diane Schuler with shared stories and beautiful music.
Emmett ‘Shkeme’ Garcia, a talented traditional storyteller from Santa Ana Pueblo, will be featured at Coronado Historic Site on Saturday, May 27, 2017 at 11:15. Following the oral traditions of his elders, Garcia tells tales of the creation of the seasons, coyote stories, and legends of how things came to be.
Come and soak up the sun out here at Coronado Historic Site! This guy was taking it easy , enjoying the sunshine on a warm spring day and visiting with Ranger Janet today on our trails.
An eager crew showed up bright and early to spend Thursday morning at Coronado, working on various landscaping and maintenance projects with our staff. They spread over two tons of gravel in the picnic areas and worked on trails to get our site ready for the coming busy season. Linseed oil on the traditionally-made caretta will keep it looking great for another year! Thank you to all the people who sacrificed their time to come out today. We couldn’t do it without you! : )
The first of the three sisters to sprout this year in our native demonstration garden at Coronado Historic Site are beans that no one planted! Last year’s seeds have taken advantage of the warm days last week here in Bernalillo, and a little much-needed rain to volunteer a new crop of beautiful, healthy bean plants.
