IMG_2051 Crow Canyon may just a hop, skip and a jump from Telluride, but this world-class archaeological research center represents a long march back in time to explore the rich history of the ancestral Pueblo Indians commonly known as the Anasazi.

Experiential education is at the heart of Crow Canyon’s mission, and on June 16,  8 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., the Center, in conjunction with the Telluride Historical Museum, plans to pull out all the stops for a select group of Telluride locals.

The idea of the day-long adventure is a behind-the-scenes tour of the Center’s activities, including a site tour and curation room tour, led by three members of Crow Canyon’s high octane geek squad: Dr. Mark Varien, vice president of programs, whose dissertation on Mesa Verde region settlement patterns was awarded the Society for American Archaeology’s Best Dissertation Award; Grant Coffey, research archaeologist and project director for the center’s current excavation program at the Goodman Point Ruins; and Dr. Scott Ortman, director of research and education.

Tuition is $120/guest to cover only out-of-pocket expenses, including transportation to and from the Center, lunch, and staffing, while providing an insider’s look at life hundreds of years ago in our own backyard.

Space is limited. Call the the Museum, 970-728-3344.
