Dear Professor Cooper, I'm working on recruiting docents for the CU Museum of Natural History. Deane Bowers suggested that I contact you in regards to disseminating the information to retired faculty. We would love to have them involved in the museum and in working with the student groups who tour our collections. I'm attaching a flyer to this email that includes some information about the docent program as well as contact information.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks so much for your help, Laureen Trainer
