Our state’s natural beauty lends itself to a diverse array of stories. The people, places and objects of history enliven our understanding of what it means to be a Coloradan. Whether you live in an urban setting or hail from a rural burg in our stunning prairies or mountain landscapes, we all share a common heritage. Natives and newcomers alike can always learn something new in this series, an assortment of topics that exemplifies a potpourri of history.
Join us this season as we dive into Dynamic Colorado!
We’ll gain insight into wolf reintroduction in the Rocky Mountain region, and we’ll explore the paintings of Stephen Batura, whose art is inspired by the photography of Charles Lillybridge. We’ll delve into the 100-year history of Denver Water and learn from Dr. Temple Grandin about the different types of minds and how they all contribute to society. We’ll hear about Zebulon Pike’s adventure in the Rockies, followed by a look into Colorado’s radio history. The season continues with looks at the murder of Don Antonio Juarez Chavez and the ancient astronomers of the Southwest, and you can join us for a special lecture by Colorado’s new State Historian.
There’s a lot to explore, so we look forward to seeing you soon!
