For an exciting day of viewing bison and learning about Ice Age American Indians, travel in a group with knowledgeable guides on Saturday, August 17. The educational outing, Experience Soapstone Prairie Natural Area, has been organized by the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. Soapstone Prairie Natural Area (SPNA) is located about 25 miles north of Fort Collins on the Wyoming border. The area encompasses over 28 square miles and is renowned for its unique bison herd and cultural resources. Experienced guides Daniel Owen and David Bayer will provide an overview of SPNA as well as the history of the bison onsite. Attendees will be shaded under a picnic structure for this portion of the excursion. Following lunch, participants will enjoy a ¼-mile walk up a gentle slope to the Lindenmeier Archaeological Site. The site gained cultural significance in the 1930s through excavations which conclusively dated human habitation in the Western Hemisphere to at least 10,000 years ago. The guides will recount this amazing story, and the short walk uphill is on a paved, ADA-accessible trail. For this unique experience, participants will depart on a passenger van from the Global Village Museum at 9:30 am and return no later than 5 pm. Tickets are $50 per person and include a box lunch with water. Registration, which is limited to 15 people, and signed waiver are required at globalvillagemuseum.org. Once registered, participants will receive an email to indicate their box lunch choices. Please enter your email address and phone number when you register so you will receive this email. The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue, and Museum hours are 11 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
