Presentations begin Friday, July 9, and continue each Friday through August 27, at 5 p.m. at the Stanley Museum, less than one mile north of Stanley on Highway 75.

“We have another great line-up for our 2021 ‘Mountain Chronicles’ series this summer, including programs on the impact of climate change to our region, hummingbirds, a forum with local women guides, and, one I’m particularly looking forward to, pikas,” said Executive Director, Lin Gray. “The programs are outside and we will continue to have options for physical distancing for guests.”
