Hikes & Excursions

Staying physically active is one of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy. The Center for Disease Control states that in many areas, people can visit parks, trails, and open spaces as a way to relieve stress, get some fresh air, and stay active. While these facilities and areas can offer health benefits, it is important that you follow the steps below to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. Simple guidelines include:

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.

  • Wear a mask.

  • Wash your hands often and don’t share items with people you don’t live with.

 
Member-Only Hikes

Excursions

May 27-30, 2021 - Experience Zuni

Join us as we spend 4 days and 3 (or 4) nights of quality time learning the history, culture, food and arts of the Zuni People.

 

We will have the privilege of experienced Zuni archaeologists, guides and teachers as we venture to archaeological sites, enjoy hearing their migration story, dine on traditional foods, and visit local artists known for their intricate jewelry and sculptural stone fetish carvings. The Zuni, a Puebloan People, are considered the most traditional of the 19 New Mexican pueblos, with a unique language, culture and history. Zuni is a sovereign, self-governed nation, continuing their sacred ceremonial activities throughout the year, as they have for millennia. For over 1,200 or more years, the Zuni have been living in their current New Mexico location. They call this homeland Halona Idiwan’a, or Middle Place. It is the largest of the 19 pueblos, covering over 700 square miles, and with a population of over 10,000 people, most of whom live in the main village of Zuni and the surrounding community of Blackrock.
