Water Walk with Dennis Gorsett

Dive deep into the role water plays in Western Colorado and how it has shaped our past and present and what it will look like in the future.

Have you ever wondered what our desert would look like without irrigation?  How did people change this desert landscape into an area capable of large scale farming? What is the future of water in Western Colorado?

Our museum sites are celebrating Earth Science Week 2021, and the theme of "Water Today and in the Future" with a walking tour at Cross Orchards Historic Site.  This water walk will emphasize development, use, and planning for water shortage.  

This one hour guided walking tour of the irrigation demonstration, orchard, and other aspects of the Cross Orchards Historic Site will be led by Dennis Gorsett, Retired Soil Conservationist, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service who specialized in water use and vegetation management.  

Please arrive at Cross Orchards Historic Site, 3073 F Road, at 10:00 am for this hour long guided walking tour.  This event is free and open to the public.
