Tour Description

This free program takes a particular topic and explores it in depth. Examples are the native foods eaten by the Ancestral Puebloans, their pottery, or their music and instruments. This is a kids-friendly, typically hands-on program limited to a small group; reservations are required. This does not replace our regular walking tours, but rather expands on the many topics covered on a tour. The program is suitable for those with limited time and people who cannot do the walking tour, especially older adults and young children, those with physical limitations, and those who work during the week. Walk-in visitors without reservations will be accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis, up to 25 people.

Tour Dates:
May 18, 2014
June 15, 2014
July 20, 2014
Aug 17, 2014
Sep 21, 2014
