Taos, NM—April 11, 2019—The public is invited to view historical photos and local artwork at an open house at the Camino Real Ranger Station at 15160 State Road 75 in Peñasco, NM from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 23.

The Camino Real Ranger Station has recently adorned the public space in their office with historical black and white photographs that celebrate its multiple uses and honor the cultures and communities that comprise the rich and distinct history of northern New Mexico. People from the local community might even recognize some of the individuals in the photos.

The historical photographs were provided by the State of New Mexico’s Palace of the Governors photo archives as well as the Carson National Forest Heritage Resources archives. The works of local artists Blair Brown, Krysteen Waszak and Leigh Gusterson will also be on display.

This open house is also an opportunity to meet local forest managers and employees, exchange stories, and help us understand what caring for forest lands and serving its people means to you.

Please join us at this open house to celebrate our shared connection to public lands. For additional information regarding the open house please contact the Camino Real Ranger Station at 575-587-2255.
