AIA Lecture Series: Missing the boat

Hello world

Join the Museum of Natural History for a free lecture titled "Ancient Dugout Canoes in the Mississippi-Missouri Watershed," presented by Peter Wood.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, large vessels were fashioned from cedar, poplar and cottonwood trunks. The talk will address how big, numerous and widely dispersed these canoes were; how far back in time they go; and how the introduction of European metal tools influenced or altered their construction.

The lecture is scheduled for Wednesday, May 3, 7 p.m., at the CU Musuem (Henderson Building).

Call for participants: Gardening study

Researchers are launching a Denver-based study exploring the potential of community gardening to promote nutrition, improve active lifestyles and prevent cancer. Seeking individuals over the age of 18 who are relatively new to gardening and offering financial compensation, the study will work with community gardeners and people on garden waiting lists to measure behavior changes.

If you are interested or would like more information, email angel.villalobos@colorado.edu or call 303-724-1235.

AIA Lecture Series: Ancient dugout canoes in the Mississippi-Missouri watershed

Hello world

In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, large vessels were fashioned from cedar, poplar and cottonwood trunks. But how big, how numerous and how widely dispersed were these canoes? How far back do they go in time, and how did the introduction of European metal tools influence or alter the construction of these boats? The May 3 talk will suggest preliminary answers to these and related questions.

The event is co-sponsored by the Indian Peaks Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society.
