 On Monday, April 18th, Aztec Ruins celebrated the culmination of a four-year-long "Class Act" partnership with Bloomfield High School. As these seniors take the next step of their journey, Aztec Ruins shared some local Site Steward training, to highlight opportunities for area-wide stewardship opportunities of ancestral Pueblo sites both within and outside of NPS lands. "Salmon Ruins", a local privately owned historic site and Site Stewardship agency, hosted this gathering. Both past and present Site Steward directors happened to be onsite to interact during this presentation time. Friends of Aztec Ruins supported the event by providing a pizza and cake lunch through local small businesses to mark the occasion.
