Come and experience a tour of Southern France's cave paintings by Annette Butts, Aboriginal Quinkan cave paintings of Queensland, Australia, with Dr. Carol Patterson, and Bill Harris brings us highlights of Uncompahgre Plateau chapter field trips to locate several enigmatic architectural "hogan" sites that were excavated 75 years ago by Harold and Betty Huscher, Colorado archaeologists, and then "lost" to science.
Refreshments will be served; public is invited. The free presentation will be held at 7 p.m. at First Methodist Church, 19 S. Park Street, Montrose.
