Each year a small group of sixth-graders is chosen to experience an outdoor adventure at Ghost Ranch near Abiquiu. Gene McCraken, an experienced and seasoned wrangler and retired teacher, and his wife Peggy, organize and lead the expedition. Two teachers from the Pojoaque Valley Middle School accompany the students. The participants are introduced to horseback riding, hiking and overnight camping.
This program is made possible through support from donors like you as well as partner organizations including Pajarito Environmental Education Center in Los Alamos, Pojoaque Valley Public School District, and the National Ghost Ranch Foundation.
