Kick off summer with a local food demo, a garden tile ribbon-cutting, and a “planting passport” launch! Under the shade of the apricot tree in our Traditions Garden, you will enjoy learning how to make healthy summer snacks while admiring the beautiful new tiles made by local artist Cirrelda Snider-Bryan.
The Visitor Center and other partnering agencies will also be launching their planting passport that takes you to each of seven sites along the Rio Grande that grow plants for people and wildlife. Complete the passport and win a prize! It’s a great way to keep learning and growing this summer.
FREE. Please register by calling 505-897-8831.
3:30pm – 4:30pm
The Taoist Water Method is a Qigong form that has many health benefits. It provides mental clarity, loosens the muscles and builds power, strengthens the organs, improves cardio-pulmonary function, strengthens the nerves, improves vascular function, helps to prevent injury to joints, ligaments and bones, eases stress, balances emotions and builds athletic and martial arts power.
Qigong exercises are safe for all ages. Unlike Tai Chi, Qigong doesn’t require memorization of a lot of movements. This introduction will go over the basic alignments to increase qi through the body.
