Smitten by Stone: How We Came to Love the Grand Canyon

February 12 @ 5:30 pm

Admission Price: See description for details
Lake Havasu Museum of History

Despite of being one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World,” the Grand Canyon hasn’t always been held in the high esteem that it is today. In fact, during the entire exploratory era, lasting nearly 320 years, the Grand Canyon that we all know and love was seen as an inconvenient obstacle. Few of its early visitors returned a second time. It was geologists who first appreciated the Grand Canyon for its great beauty, announcing to the world that this wonder was something to be revered. 

In this program, presented by AZ Humanities Road Scholar Wayne Ranney, discover the story of humanity’s love affair with the Grand Canyon.

There will be a wine and cheese reception before the event. It is free to museum members, and non-members will be charged $5.

The program begins at 7pm and is free to all. Signs will direct attendees to the gymnasium at ASU Lake Havasu.
