Amazing Culturally Modified Trees of The Pikes Peak Region
 
PPHS Modified Trees Pikes Peak Historical Society has been documenting human-modified trees for almost 20 years. These remarkable living artifacts, displaying a variety of unusual shapes, are truly works of art, sculpted by highly talented and creative peoples. Known widely as culturally modified trees (CMTs), they are cited in several areas of the USA.
 
This presentation will highlight some of the CMTs found in our region. Not every bent tree in the forest is a CMT. Most are "imposters", modified by natural processes, or fall in a grey area where it is currently impossible to know if they are real.
 
Andy Weinzapfel, PPHS Tree Committee Chairman, will be giving this presentation at Eleven Mile State Park, North Shore Amphitheatre, at 8:00pm, Saturday, July 7.  Park entrance fee will be charged without a State Parks Pass. For more information call 719-748-8259 or  719-748-3861.
Florissant Heritage Day
 
Flo PPHS The Pikes Peak Historical Society, along with the Florissant Grange and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, will have a variety of activities for visitors during the 2018 Heritage Day celebration. There will be a pancake breakfast at the fire station.  
 
A variety of talks, tours of historic locations, vendors, and numerous activities for the children.
The Pikes Peak Historical Society will be hosting museum tours, one-room schoolhouse, and a gold panning exhibit.  
 
The Pikes Peak Historical Society invites you to Florissant Heritage Day on Saturday, July 28th to learn more about the town of Florissant, the surrounding area and have some fun at the same time. This program is presented as a public service of the Pikes Peak Historical Society. Admission is free to all PPHS sponsored events. For more information call 719-748-8259 or  719-748-3861.
