Audubon Day: A Celebration of Birds

May 4, 2019


Saturday, May 4th, 2019, 10am to 2pm, free!

On Saturday, May 4th from 10 am until 2 pm the Center for New Mexico Archaeology will host a National Audubon Day celebration in partnership with Audubon New Mexico.

Birds have played a critical part in the lives of New Mexico's Native people in both wild and domesticated roles as sources for tools, feathers, and food. Explore much more about the history of the human and avian relationship with pottery-making demonstrations by Robert Tenorio (Kewa), flute playing by Marlon Magdalena (Jemez Pueblo), turkey feather blanket making by Mary Weahkee (Santa Clara Pueblo), live birds of prey, hands on activities, and food vendors.

This event is free and open to the public!

While you're visiting the Center for New Mexico Archaeology, don't forget to see the exhibit Birds: Spiritual Messengers of the Skies that is currently on display at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology and can be viewed during regular business hours until September 2019.

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
