It's our 17th Birthday! On July 25th, 2000, President Bill Clinton signed the Valles Caldera Preservation Act, which created the Valles Caldera National Preserve. To celebrate that occasion and the many accomplishments of past and present staff, volunteers, and contributors, we will host special activities. We invite you to grab some cake and help us celebrate the creation of the preserve. Activities include Earth Skills Gathering - Watch primitive skills demonstrations such as flintknapping and stone tool making. Meet the Staff - Come see and chat with staff as they share information about their current research projects. Photo Booths - Express your wild, photogenic side at one of our photo booths stationed around the Valle Grande district.
