Around 300 million years ago, the Eagle River Valley was close to the equator, under a great salt lake. Strange, deformed rocks, salty creeks and a local wallboard industry are evidence of this long ago land. Come learn about the ancient history you see every day when we present “Eagle Valley Evaporites on the Move”.
Nanette Kuich is a former geologist who moved to Edwards 16 years ago. After a career of searching for oil and gas underground, she wanted to live where the geology was in your face! And then she found out how much more nature had to offer than rocks – she worked for a guiding company and ski mountain, getting to experience what’s all around us with visitors to our valley. Presently, she is the President of the Gore Range Chapter of the Colorado Native Plant Society, desperately trying to remember the names of all the plants she forgets every winter.
