A Walking Stick Workshop


A Walking Stick Workshop

(sponsored by the Friends of Coronado State Monument)


Ranger Annie Campagna  and Carol Price


The Friends of Coronado State Monument present a walking stick workshop.  With spring just around the corner and outdoor hiking adventures sure to be on everyone’s ‘to do’ list, Ranger Annie Campagna at Coronado State Monument and her assistant, Carol Price will demonstrate how to make the stick.  Using native vegetation, yucca spears from the yucca plants found at the monument and locust branches from the Corrales area, you, too, will design and decorate a handsome walking stick to take home.

You will be working with a wide variety of embellishments:  beads, leather, paint, shellac, and feathers.  You may want to bring your own materials.  The focus will be to create unique patterns and designs that personalize each stick.  So, dust off those hiking boots, break out those walking shorts, and join us for a morning of fun as you get ready to ‘hit the trails’ with a new walking stick in hand.


Saturday, March 20, 2010, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


Workshop will be held on Saturday, March 20 at 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Coronado State Monument which is located on Highway 550 west of Bernalillo. 



Cost is $15 per person (cash or check).  Cost includes stick and all supplies.  Adults and children ages 12 years and older are welcome to participate.  All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Refreshments will be served.
