Gila Friends Meeting (Quaker) invites everyone to join them at Silver City's Gough Park pavilion on Sunday, August 5, to remember the menace nuclear weapons continue to represent to New Mexicans - and the rest of the world. Bring a chair and join in a circle of silent contemplation at 12:30 p.m., followed by a period of worship sharing. Information on the history of the atomic bomb and on current efforts to abolish nuclear weapons will be available.

The 73rd anniversary of the first detonation of a nuclear weapon in wartime will be the next day, August 6. Three days after an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, killing 70,000 in a moment, another A-bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, killing another 20,000. Thousands more have been killed, sterilized or sickened by the long-term effects of the radiation from those two explosions. Most of the casualties have been civilians. Exhibits at the Aug. 5 event will show the consequences of these two atomic bombings.

Silver City, NM, July 18, 2018—For Immediate Release. The Conservation Corps provides young women and men with structured, safe and challenging service and educational opportunities through projects that promote personal growth, the development of social skills, and an ethic of natural resource stewardship.

The Aldo Leopold Youth Conservation Corps (ALCS YCC) crew and the Conservation Corp of New Mexico (CCNM) crew have spent part of their summer improving conditions on the Silver City Ranger District. The ALCS YCC crew spent two weeks in June working on rerouting and improving a popular segment of trail on the Ft. Bayard Trail System near Stevens Creek. Prior to their work, this trail had been unsustainable. The CCNM crew worked a segment of the Continental Divide Scenic Trail near Walnut Creek. They are implementing reroutes of trail that are unsustainable due to steep segments and poor trail alignment.

Join us as we dedicate the latest mural project of the Mimbres Region Arts Council (MRAC) Youth Mural Program on Friday, July 20, at 12:00 pm at the Silver City Public Library, 515 W. College Street.

Twenty-five campers, eight interns, nine apprentice interns, and two artists spent two weeks at Mural Summer Camp creating a mural mosaic on the large planter on the College Street side of the library as well as updating the library sign.
