    (Albuquerque, New Mexico) – The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (NMMNHS) has joined the New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources in a statewide collaborative groundwater monitoring network. The Museum will host one of the many monitoring locations for the project and serve as an important educational outlet.

    Water shortages have been commonplace in communities across New Mexico over the past several years and the state lacks sufficient groundwater level measurements for many regions. In an effort to protect the groundwater resource, this new community-oriented program aims to reach out specifically to farmers, ranchers and well owners, as well as municipalities to share data and information.

    The Our Groundwater Future project will be launched Monday, April 26, at 10:30 a.m. at the NMMNHS’s Kiwanis Learning Garden. The project goal is to work with well owners and operators in rural communities to inform and train them on groundwater measurements.

    Paranormal Researchers share stories at Fort Stanton & Lincoln Historic Sites After Dark Events

    (Santa Fe, New Mexico) – During 160 years in operation, Fort Stanton’s served as an Army post, tuberculosis sanatorium, internment camp and correctional facility.  With infamy gained through the Lincoln County Wars, and the lives of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett, the history of Lincoln, New Mexico is riddled with acts of revenge, vigilante justice and senseless violence. Between 1870 and 1886, more than 50 people met a violent end along the main road.

    Reports of paranormal activity in these two storied southeastern New Mexico Historic Sites dates back more than a century. Spine-tingling tales from former workers and people who have had unusual experiences at these and other New Mexico venues are being preserved by the Lincoln County Paranormal Society (LCPS).
