A People's Story of the Land

The month of May has been designated as Annual Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month, to promote Utah's historical heritage throughout the state. Here at Stokes Nature Center, we are teaming up with the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, and the USU Museum of Anthropology to take this  opportunity to showcase the diverse history of our relationship with the land. 

Please join us on Saturday, May 19th, from 10 AM - 4 PM for our First Annual Native People's Day at Stokes Nature Center.

We will have special exhibits, activities, and demonstrations of skill such as basket-weaving, bead-making, using natural dyes, edible and medicinal plant identification, and more!

Darren Parry, chairman of the Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation, will be closing the day's festivities with a presentation about balancing the needs of the Shoshone people with environmental stewardship.
