El Presidio Terrenate

with Rebecca Orozco

Visit the remains of the Santa Cruz de Terrenate, a chain of presidios built by Spain in the 1770s to protect their northern frontier against Apache attack. The effort failed and the fortress was abandoned by 1780. Then, travel to the Amerind Foundation to see the artifacts excavated by Dr. Charles DiPeso in the 1950s. There, we will take time for a picnic lunch. The trip will start with a one-hour lecture on the background history then depart for the site. Bring a sack lunch, hat, water, sunscreen and walking shoes. *Registration and payments must be made no later than Mar. 20- no refunds after this date.

Saturday, March 28
Lecture: 8 a.m.
Departure: 9 a.m.
