In celebration of Grand Canyon National Park’s (GCNP) Centennial (February 26, 2019), Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library, in partnership with Grand Canyon Conservancy, is hosting a new summer lecture series to raise awareness of Grand Canyon National Park’s historical and cultural impact on the state and region in the last 100 years. Funding for this summer lecture series was made possible by a grant from Arizona Humanities.
The lecture series presents a variety of historical and cultural perspectives offering a depth of understanding and insight into the rich connections of our shared human experience in the context of the Grand Canyon. Each month from April through September, a lecture will be held in the Cline Library Assembly Hall. Scheduled lectures may be found at nau.edu/library/events. The events are free and open to the public. No tickets are required and seating is first available.
“The breathtaking and awe-inspiring natural beauty of the canyon draws visitors, but the stories of the people, history and culture of the Grand Canyon inspires deeper connections and understanding,” said Peter Runge, Head of Special Collections and Archives. “We hope you will join us for this exciting opportunity to share the unique stories of Grand Canyon and Grand Canyon National Park.”
