In this CU on the Weekend lecture, Thomas Andrews will explore the deep history of human-environment interactions in the Colorado River headwaters region of Rocky Mountain National Park from the end of the last ice age through the present day. By examining the successive stories of indigenous peoples, American miners and homesteaders, and federal land managers, we will trace the far-reaching social, economic and ecological forces that have molded the present of the Kawuneeche Valley…and its imperiled future, too.
