Gold Panning

Are you looking for a fun activity for you group while you are enjoying the great outdoor? Schedule a time to learn how to pan for gold. This is an hour-long activity which includes some of New Mexico’s gold rush history, some panning instruction and then a chance to get a little wet (and dirty) while you practice your skills at panning in the sluice boxes. A minimum if 15 people is needed to schedule the activity with a maximum of 35.
