AZTEC — Aztec Ruins National Monument will host its sixth annual Earth Day celebration on Saturday with environmentally friendly activities and performances.

The celebration, which is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is free and includes admission to the monument.

Various crafts, games, giveaways and exhibits will be available, including adobe brick building, a Junior Ranger recycling program, ancestral Pueblo farming, solar ovens and rockets, recycled artwork and jewelry demonstrations, a plant sale and plant seeds to-go.

The Acoma Rain Dancers will dance twice during the celebration to share their traditions, and student musicians from Koogler Middle School will perform.

"We are grateful that so many organizations and businesses — from Best Buy to the Forest Service to ConocoPhillips — are willing to donate their time to share their environmental efforts with the public," said Chaco Culture and Aztec Ruins Superintendent Larry Turk in a press release.
