Event description

Description

Discover the human history of Eagle Valley and the use of its rich natural resources for food production. Kathy Heicher from Eagle County Historical Society will take us back in time to what gave rise to local names such as Potato Patch Drive and Everkrisp Trail.


Please note: Our evening speaker series will be held at the Vail Public Library this summer because our exhibit Exposed: the Secret Life of Roots is so big there's no more room in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Education Center. Be sure to come check it out -there are roots hanging from the ceiling!


Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.

Cost is $10; $5 for MEMBERS
