"1,000 miles into the future: 150 years after John Wesley Powell’s journey into the arid West "

 A presentation by:

Tom Minckley, Ph.D.
Professor of Geology, University of Wyoming


This summer, 63 scientists, artists, authors, journalists, academics and graduate students spent 70 days retracing John Wesley Powell’s 1,000 mile journey on the Colorado River. Expedition leader, Dr. Tom Minckley, will share personal stories about this adventure, what stayed the same or changed since Powell was there 150 years ago, and what the next 150 years will hold for the Colorado River basin if we don’t heed his and Powell’s on-the-ground observations.
