Meet Me @ The Museum-Exploring The Birch Ruins & Cabin July 7
On Monday, July 7 hit the trail with the Curator of Education and visit the Birch Ruins and Cabin located at the Knoll-Willows Open Space. Meet at the dirt parking lot south of the Stanley Historic District on Wonderview Avenue at 1:00 p.m. Parking is limited, so please carpool if possible. The Curator will first lead the group to the Ruins and explain the history of the burned-down bungalow, then lead a hike to the entrance of the Birch Cabin below. This is a low-impact hike on a dirt trail. Sturdy footwear and a water bottle are strongly encouraged. Free program; no reservations are necessary.
Meet Me @ The Museum encourages all of us to be curious about the history of sites, events, and those who came before us in Estes Park. Museum staff will aim to include the community in their local history findings once a month. Discussions will be on-site at the Museum or participants may assemble at the Museum and then embark by foot, bike or caravan to other location(s) in the Estes valley. Get involved with the Museum staff’s topic of choice by participating in Meet Me @ the Museum events on the first Monday of every month.
