A Park is Born

An Inside Look at the Creation of Petroglyph National Monument

Retired Albuquerque Open Space Superintendent Dr. Matt Schmader will speak on the topic “A Park is Born: An Inside Look at the Creation of Petroglyph National Monument” Wednesday, February 20, 2019.


Time: 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM

Location: Tanoan Country Club


The lecture is sponsored by Adventures in Anthropology, a 501 (c)(3) organization that focuses on the diverse people of the Southwest, their past history, as well as their present interactions, through the context of cultures, history and community.

Dr. Matt Schmader has worked for 39 years in southwestern archaeology, principally in the middle Rio Grande Valley.

He has worked on sites of virtually every cultural time period, ranging from PaleoIndian campsites to Archaic structures, from early ancestral puebloan pit houses to classic period petroglyph sites and pueblo villages, and from Spanish contact/colonial sites to the historic Red Light District in downtown Albuquerque.

His studies were instrumental in the creation of Petroglyph National Monument. His current research interests are the transition from foraging to horticulture, and the contact period in the American Southwest.

Dr. Schmader served as Assistant Superintendent and then Superintendent of the Albuquerque Open Space Division from 1995 until retiring in 2016 and was the only city Archaeologist form 2007 to 2016.

He is currently Adjunct Associate Professor of Archaeology at the Department of Anthropology, University of New Mexico.
