Presented by Bear Creek Nature Center at Bear Creek Nature Center, Colorado Springs CO

Jul 27 2019
Edwin James: First Recorded Man to Climb Pikes Peak presented by Bear Creek Nature Center at Bear Creek Nature Center, Colorado Springs CO

Learn about Edwin James!

An explorer, doctor, botanist, author, translator, and abolitionist, Edwin James has somehow slipped between the cracks of history.

With the bicentennial year of Edwin’s successful climb to the summit of Pikes Peak as a member of the Long Expedition approaching, Mark James illuminates the story of his distant ancestor in a fascinating presentation.

The presentation is followed by a short hike to I.D. some Bear Creek plants, including one named for Edwin James!
