Women of Rocky History Tour
Oct 27, 2023
Join Rocky Mountain Conservancy on a unique educational experience by bus! Participants will venture throughout the Estes Valley and Rocky Mountain National Park to walk in the footsteps of magnificent women who homesteaded and visited the area. This program will include the stories and impacts of European homesteading women including Isabella Bird, Anna Wolfrom Dove, and Esther Burnell, along with more modern female pioneers like Bettie Willard.
This program is offered for a limited time this fall in celebration of Isabella Bird’s arrival to the Estes Valley. Isabella Bird was one of the first women to summit Longs Peak and is well known for writing the book, “A Lady’s Life in the Rocky Mountains”.
Tickets are $50 and include a copy of the book “The Magnificent Mountain Women: Adventures in the Colorado Rockies,” written by Jan Robertson.
