Tuesday, March 21: Abraham Lincoln Home National Historic Site

Abraham Lincoln believed in the ideal that everyone in America should have the opportunity to improve their economic and social condition.  Lincoln’s life was the embodiment of that idea.  We know him as the sixteenth President but he was also a spouse, parent, and neighbor who experienced the same hopes, dreams, and challenges of life that are still experienced by many people today.

Tuesday, March 28 : Zion National Park

Zion National Park is a southwest Utah nature preserve distinguished by Zion Canyon’s steep red cliffs. Zion Canyon Scenic Drive cuts through its main section, leading to forest trails along the Virgin River. The river flows to the Emerald Pools, which have waterfalls and a hanging garden. Along the river, partly through deep chasms, is Zion Narrows wading hike. The highlight of Zion National Park is an expansive canyon. Averaging 2,000 feet deep, Zion Canyon offers hiking opportunities along its floor in the 20 to 30 foot wide area known as The Narrows and the challenging area known as The Subway. Join us as we discover this amazing wonder in our National Park System!  ( further updated program information may be forthcoming)


Tues., April 4 : Frontier Army Museum: History of Fort Leavenworth

From the “Gateway to the West” to “Intellectual Center of the Army”.  With the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, roads for commerce and travel began to spring up. These new roads, such as the Santa Fe and Oregon Trail, and movement into the west required the US Army to begin setting up forts and posts on the trails. In 1827 Colonel Henry Leavenworth was handpicked to establish a new post along the Missouri River. The post would provide an escort along the Santa Fe Trail, to protect the western frontier and be a show of force to the Native American tribes settled in the area. Colonel Leavenworth, with the officers and men of the 3d Infantry Regiment from Jefferson Barracks at St. Louis, Missouri were assigned to locate and establish a permanent cantonment. The location of the post was selected in 1827 and it is currently the oldest continually operating post west of the Mississippi River.

Petrified Forest.jpg

Tuesday, April 25th Petrified Forest National Park

Petrified Forest National Park is located in the greater Painted Desert—they are not two separate parks. While the Painted Desert encompasses about 1500 square miles, the park is over 200,000 acres—and not desert! Actually the main environment is short-grass prairie or intermountain-basin, semi-arid grassland. It is dry here, but there is snow in the winter and rain during the monsoon. Explore with us both the nature and history of this fascinating place  from prehistoric peoples to the Civilian Conservation Corps. From early explorers to Route 66 motorists, the park has many stories to tell.
