The Yuma County Library District, in collaboration with the Arizona Historical Society, is pleased to present a special guest lecture series focusing on Arizona history and heritage. There is no charge to attend.
On Tuesday, March 14th, Arizona Humanities Council road scholar Jim Turner will present “The Mighty Colorado River: From Glaciers to the Sea” at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the Main Library. Mr. Turner has traced the Green and Colorado rivers from their beginnings as clear bubbling glacial springs high in the mountains, then through roaring canyons in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada, and finally to the salt flats in Mexico. Stunning photographs tell the story of the river’s two thousand miles of scenic wonders, geography, wildlife, history, recreation, politics, and local culture.
The Main Library is located at 2951 S 21st Drive. For more information, call (928) 782-1871.
