The Wells Petroglyph Preserve is open for tours.
Every winter the Wells Petroglyph Preserve shuts down for a winter break. All tours will be suspended on November 20th and will start up again in March. Please check back with us in February to select a tour during the 2023 season. The staff at MPPP and volunteer docents expresses gratitude to all our guests who toured with us this pass year. Thank you for bringing your friends and family to experience the mysterious petroglyphs. All your support helps the project to continue our mission to record, preserve and to educate the public.
Site Tours are fundamental to both the educational and fundraising mission of support. As a reminder, the State of New Mexico's current health directive is that if you are unvaccinated you are to wear a mask in public, and it if you are vaccinated you are encouraged to wear a mask in public. Wearing a mask while hiking becomes a greater risk of tripping or falling and can cause overheating in the summer heat. Therefore, only Private tours and Native American tours are offered at this time. Those of groups of people who are associated with each other, like a family or similar, is one way for our participants and our docents to enjoy a two hour tour. Should the directive change, we will advise you and proceed accordingly.
