La Cueva is an archaeological site at Dripping Springs Natural Area. We will hike across the canyon to visit the site, see several types of stone tools , and explore the area, including the visitor’s center at the park. We will also learn about the natural history of the area and how it differs from El Paso. There is a native plant garden outside the visitor center as well.
We will meet at the Transmountain Dairy Queen at I-10 at 9am, or at the Dripping springs visitor center at 9:45am.
This hike is rated as moderate. Duration of the field trip 4-5 hours.
Bring lunch/snack, water, sun protection, and wear good walking shoes. Field trips are free, unless we are going a fee area.
