This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP will help us know how many chairs to set out. Please shoot Sue a quick email with your name, the number of people in your group that are coming, and just tack “Buckhorn Ranger Station” on to the end so we know which event you’re signing up for. Thanks!

Lawrence Fullenkamp, Zone Archaeologist on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland for the last 22 years would be presenting information on Buckhorn Canyon History. The talk will discuss the recent historic preservation work the ARP is working on with the State Historical Fund, Colorado Preservation Inc, HistoriCorps, and others at Buckhorn Ranger Station and Arrowhead Lodge in the Poudre Canyon. The talk will highlight historical information about the Dickerson Family, The Hammond Family, early Forest Service History, the Civilian Conservation Corps, and the surrounding areas.

The meeting room is in 2150 Centre Ave Building E in the front of the building at the corner of Centre Ave and Phemister. There is parking in front of the building and the meeting room is directly east (right) of the front entry doors just off the front lobby.
