Vogle Canyon - A Renewed Dace, A Renewed Spirit

Vogel Canyon is a distilled record of the human past on the High Plains in southeastern Colorado. This video celebrates the successful partnerships which have preserved this important record of the human past. Produced in partnership by  the Pikes Peak Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society and the  U.S. Forest Service, Comanche National Grassland this 21 minute video summarizes  an important conservation project south of La Junta, Colorado. The program includes video of graffiti removal, trail construction,  and contains a strong anti-vandalism message.

Funded through a grant from the Colorado State Historical Fund.

Perserving Cultural Heritage

This presentation was created by Brandon Ott. As an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, it was his Eagle Scout Project. Brandon spent over a 1,000 hours visiting sites, museums, and researching archaeology preservation.  Tom Sholes (Pikes Peak Chapter) provided guidance and Dave Sproul (Pikes Peak Chapter) provided the music track.
