Southwest Environmental Center Back By Noon Outings

October 21, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Saturday, repeating until December 2, 2017


We’re excited to announce the Fall 2017 line up of our Saturday morning guided history outings. Nature lovers from across the region are invited to participate in yoga at White Sands, discover numerous trackways and footprints left by prehistoric creatures, learn about medicinal flora in the Organ Mountains, walk among the late-blooming wildflowers, learn about the ecological impact of the border fence, explore a little known slot canyon and a cave. The hikes are designed to showcase some of the unique natural features of the Las Cruces/El Paso area. Informative, family friendly, and not too strenuous, most of the trips will have you back to your car by noon.

Featuring a mix of the new and familiar, the Fall 2017 lineup includes the following trips:

  • Geology of the Franklin Mountains, Franklin Mountains: 9/23
  • Medicinal Flora of Dripping Springs, Organ Mountains: 10/7
  • Last flowers of Aguirre Springs, Organ Mountains: 10/21
  • No Walls in the Wild, Sunland Park: 10/28
  • Transport Back in Time at the Prehistoric Trackways, Robledo Mountains:11/4
  • Yoga at White Sands, White Sands Missile Range: 11/11
  • Slot Canyon Adventure, East of the Robledo Mountains: 11/18
  • Trek to Aztec Cave, Franklin Mountains: 12/2

All trips are open to the public. Some outings require additional parking fees. Advanced reservations are required. Participants may register three weeks in advance of each outing. Space is limited, and half of the available slots for each trip are reserved for members of the Southwest Environmental Center. Be sure to bring sturdy shoes, water, sunscreen and a hat.
