Free On-Site Fieldtrips

We know how valuable engaging on-site experiences are for students, so we created this fieldtrip program to help get the most out of your school's visit. Fieldtrips to Los Luceros Historic Site are designed to complement the New Mexico Department of Education's benchmarks and standards. The visits are customized to three grade groups: K-4, 5-8, 9-12.

Free Virtual Classroom Visits

Los Luceros Historic Site participates in the Department of Cultural Affairs' "Invite an Educator" program. Simply add programs to your cart, "checkout" (all programs are free), and our educators will schedule a time to virtually present to your class on your chosen topic. We currently offer lessons on Sheep and Livestock, Archaeology, Riparian Zones, and Agriculture and Farming. We are excited to virtually visit your classroom!
