Many communities still in Boulder County came to be because of mining but how did the mining come to be? What geologic features and occurrences made this area rich in minerals? What minerals were mined here and how? Our first few minutes will be spent getting everyone onto Zoom. There will be time to ask questions as the program finishes. Please register by December 12 so that no one misses the Zoom link that will be emailed the day before.Minimum Participants: 4

I am a physicist, chemist, and geologist with a passion for Colorado’s geology, minerals and mining. I am faculty for physics and materials science at the University of Colorado. I perform research and teach laser science, microscopy, and optics.
I’m a Colorado native; I grew up in Golden and moved to Greeley to attend UNC. I earned my undergraduate and MA degrees in history. That led me to museums, where I’ve worked for over 20 years. As of December of 2010 I’m excited to have Boulder County Parks and Open Space as my workplace. There’s fun, constant learning, and variety in being the Cultural History Program Coordinator; I get to work with amazing and talented colleagues and volunteers as we share the history of the area.
