The Friends of Tijeras Pueblo, in partnership with the Forest Service, host a variety of events such as "Saturday Afternoon at Tijeras Pueblo", "Star Nights", and special archaeology, pottery and flint knapping workshops. We are proud of our Junior Archaeologist Program and special tours conducted at the Tijeras Pueblo Archaeological site.

Monthly Lecture Series
You can count on the Friends for a stimulating evening program when you attend one of our monthly lecture/programs. The "Featured Program" is held at 7 pm, the second Tuesday of the month (excepting June, July and August when the lecture series is "on vacation"). We meet in the large conference room at the Sandia Ranger Station in Tijeras. We are told that the topics are always interesting and that the refreshments are great. Lectures are presented without charge, but we do ask that you consider making a donation at the door. All donations go to development and implementation of interactive exhibits and educational programs at the new Interpretive Center. Hope to see you there!

Hibben Center Archiving Crew
The Archiving Crew (volunteers) have worked very hard over the past year. Artifacts from Linda Cordell's 1979 Pottery Mound field school have been completed. The collection has been re-bagged, re-boxed, labeled, written up, computerized and shelved.
Now that Tijeras Pueblo and the 1979 Pottery Mound field school have been completed, the Archiving Crew will continue to work through the materials excavated by Dr. Frank Hibben. About 300 boxes have been completed and taccording to Dave Phillips, another 300 have yet to be done. The big push will be to finish archiving the Hibben Pottery Mound material.

To arrange an interesting and educational visit to the archaeological site for your classroom, club or other organization, for inquiries or additional information, just email us at: info@friendsoftijeraspueblo.org
