Geography Club at the Branigan Cultural Center
Join the Branigan Cultural Center every Saturday from 10am to 12pm as we encourage families to take a mental road trip to explore culturally significant and historical sites within the Land of Enchantment! Each month we will focus on one location of historic and cultural significance in New Mexico, discussing the people, landscape, and environment of the area.
For the month of February, join us as we learn about the Gila Wilderness! Located north of Silver City, NM, the Gila Wilderness was designated as the nation’s first wilderness area in 1924. The wilderness is approximately 27 miles from north to south, and 39 miles east to west. It is home to various predators, mammals, birds, and reptiles. Join us and discover the inner explorer in you!
Admission is free to the Branigan Cultural Center, located at 501 North Main Street. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm, and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For addition information call (575) 541-2154.
