El Rancho de las Golondrinas Event August 13-14

The Survival: New Mexico weekend at El Rancho de las Golondrinas on Saturday and Sunday August 13 and 14, 2011, is an invitation to see how well we modern day folk would survive in historical New Mexico. Talks and activities for adults and kids focus on traditional skills, and some contemporary outdoor survival skills too. The line-up includes: How to make an atlatl and atlatl dart, making a bow and arrow, and an archery and atlatl range; making adobe bricks; a weaponry demonstration; wilderness first aid and wilderness shelter techniques; curanderas talking about traditional healing herbs; sessions on edible and medicinal plants found in the Southwest; making yucca soap; making a felt snake (session for kids); making horno bread; and lots more.

The full list of activities is in the El Rancho de las Golondrinas flyer PDF. The event runs from 10 am – 4 pm each day, and I think it’s a pretty good deal for such an unusual event – especially as kids go free! Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for teens aged 13-18, and free for kids under 13. Seniors pay $5.

El Rancho de las Golondrinas is a living history museum on 200 pastoral acres, about 20 minutes south of Santa Fe Plaza. It’s easy to find: Get directions to El Rancho de las Golondrinas.
