Girl Scouts take action in many ways -- through direct service in their communities, by educating others, and by advocating for issues that better their communities.  Join us at the Roundhouse to learn about the legislative process, meet local legislators and decision makers, see how laws are made and learn how YOU can make a difference!

February 18, 2019 is Girl Scout Day at the Roundhouse.  This is a day where Girl Scouts, troops and their families are invited to visit the New Mexico State Capitol, also referred to as the Roundhouse. While we do have a schedule of events, you are welcome to visit on your own as well.  Registration is not required in order to visit the Roundhouse.

What time should you get there?  Our scheduled events begin at 9 am.  If you will not be joining us to meet the Governor, we suggest to arrive by 10 am as the legislators will begin to enter the House and Senate chambers at this time.  You can view the legislators at work by sitting in the gallery.  You can ask a security guard or a tour guide where to go and they will show you.  

Have fun and ask a lot of questions!  This is your day to explore the Roundhouse and to learn more about how YOU can make a difference and have a voice. 

Want to meet your legislator?  Visit https://www.nmlegis.gov/ and search for your legislators contact information.  Many legislators are happy to set up meetings with people from their community.  If you meet with your legislator, what will you share?

Where is the Roundhouse?  The State Capitol is located at the corner of Old Santa Fe Trail and Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe.  Park is available for free at 420 Galisteo Street which is the parking deck across the street from the Roundhouse.
