Arizona Archaeological Society

 

 
 




The Little Colorado River Chapter is located in Springerville, Arizona.  Formed in 2003, we are comprised of members from all parts of the Little Colorado River drainage area in Arizona.  The chapter is not connected to any one archaeological site but seeks to preserve, protect and appreciate archaeology in general.   The Chapter meets every 3rd Monday of the Month for a general meeting and speaker unless a field trip is planned.  Meetings are held at the Springerville Heritage Center, 418 E. Main Street in Springerville, AZ.  Call 928-551-4119 for more information.

 




FUTURE MEETINGS AND TALKS (PUBLIC WELCOME)

April 20, 2015 7:00 pm  Public Welcome.  Free

          Springerville Heritage Center, 418 E. Main Street, 7:00PM

Speaker Hugh Grinnell

"Saving the Great American West:  The Story of George Bird Grinnell"

The great West that George Bird Grinnell first encountered in 1870 as a 21-year-old man was shortly to disappear before his eyes.  Nobody was quicker to sense the desecration or was more eloquent in crusading against the poachers, and the disengaged U.S. Congress than George Bird Grinnell, the "Father of American Conservation" and founder of the first Audubon Society.  Made Possible by the Arizona Humanities Council
