      ASOMBRO INSTITUTE FOR SCIENCE EDUCATION HOSTS A DAY VISITING THE PAST

      Come get a look into the past with the Asombro Institute for Science
      Education at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park. Join us on Saturday,
      February 28th from 9:00 a.m. - noon for a day Visiting the Past.
      There will be arts and crafts for the kids including making your own
      take-home clay pot. Grind corn and throw an atlatl (what the past
      inhabitants of the area used to hunt their food). Learn about fossils
      and view some spectacular specimens. At one station, you can even
      learn how to gather data about artifacts or do some primitive
      painting! The event is free and families are welcome!

      The Asombro Institute for Science Education's Chihuahuan Desert Nature
      Park is located northeast of Las Cruces. From I25 in Las Cruces head
      east on Highway 70. Take the Mesa Grande Road exit (at OƱate High
      School). Make a U-turn under the highway to head west and stay in the
      right lane. Turn right (north) on Jornada Road. Follow Jornada Road
      for 6.5 miles and turn left at the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Park sign.
      Follow the entrance road to the parking area and trailhead.

      The Asombro Institute for Science Education is a nonprofit
