Rocky Mountain National Park will present "Discovering Rocky's Historic Landscape: A Sense of Place" for Archeology and Historic Preservation Month, celebrated to highlight important historic resources that give meaning and a sense of place to communities. The presentation is on Saturday, May 18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center auditorium in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Rocky Mountain National Park has a long human history which is represented in its buildings and structures from Native American occupation until the present. Learn how the National Historic Preservation Act protects the marks left on the landscape that tell the story of past generations.

Danielle Bonnici is a former seasonal National Park Service interpreter and a University of Colorado Denver graduate student in Historic Preservation. She will be accompanied by Karen Waddell, park cultural resources specialist.
