Colorful Colorado
September 25th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - A Finding the Story: History Colorado’s Collections in Context
We may know the general history of the Stetson cowboy hat, but how do we find the story connected to a particular hat from the History Colorado collection. Researching and reconnecting artifacts and stories can be a challenging task for curators but once the connection is made, a marvelous history unfolds. From a chuckwagonat the Zapata Ranch to a Civil War drum, join Senior Curator of Artifacts Alisa DiGiacomo as she talks about the process of finding the stories behind the art and culture of western expansion through some of History Colorado's artifacts currently on display in our exhibit, Backstory: Western American Art in Context.

October 9th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - Geology Underfoot Along Colorado’s Front Range
Join Dr. Lon Abbott, Senior Instructor in the CU Geological Sciences Department, as he makes connections between the state's "deep" history over billions of years and the human events that shaped the state's history and still affect its residents today. It will be a journey across Colorado’s geologic history starting with the formation of the state’s first continental crust 1.7 billion years ago. Mountain ranges will rise and fall, deserts and seas will encroach and recede, and you'll get to know some of Colorado’s early inhabitants of these tumultuous times.

November 13th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - Colorado's Climate Extremes - The Best and Worst Weather of the Past 150 Years
We have all heard the phrase “only in Colorado,” and it is usually applied to our wild weather. We have inches of snow one evening and it all melts by the next day. Who could forget the Flood of ’65 and tales still circulate of the Blizzard of 1913. Join Colorado’s State Climatologist, Nolan Doesken, as he highlights some of Colorado's most extreme, memorable and impactful weather events dating back to 1860. From the hottest heat, the coldest cold, the heaviest rains, the dustiest droughts and even the worst documented 'fog storm,' we will take a fascinating umbrella-free walk through Colorado's storied weather history.

December 11th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - Colorado’s Dinosaurs
The rich paleontology of Colorado captures nearly the entire evolutionary history of dinosaurs, ranging from their first appearance in the Triassic to the last dinosaurs of the Cretaceous. Among them are legends like Stegosaurus and Allosaurus, so abundant in Colorado quarries they became the target of the late 1800s "Bone Wars." Rocks preserved along the Front Range capture a once subtropical landscape, home to Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops and many more, along with the best evidence we have to explain their sudden disappearance. Ongoing research continues to reveal secrets of Colorado's prehistoric past. Join Dr. Joe Sertich, Curator of Dinosaurs at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, to explore the dinosaurs in our backyard and the history of major fossil finds across Colorado.
