South Table Mountain Hike
South Table Mountain holds much significance in its history, paleontology, and geology. Join Mary Eiberger and Kermit Shields as they take you on a hike up the mountain, sharing their expertise along the way. The hike is easy to moderate, but participants will need to be able to stand and hike for the entirety of the program. Meet-up information will be provided to all attendees after signing up. We request dogs are not in attendance, with the exception of service animals.
Mary Elizabeth Eiberger is Carl Eiberger’s daughter, and she is from Golden, Colorado. Mary inherited 17 boxes of legal work and documents about her father’s work and coalition-based efforts to prevent South Table Mountain from becoming a 75-year quarry. Mary has taught science, math, and outdoor education in high school as well as dancing. She now loves to tutor not only math and science but English and history. Mary is the quintessential Colorado girl, spending much of her time in the mountains and rivers of the state. Her husband, Tito Salas, runs Fiske Planetarium in Boulder, and they love to take trips with their two dogs, Lucky and Shadow, to the mountains, especially in the summer, to hike and mountain bike.
Kermit Shields spent his career as a petroleum geologist with a major oil company and had various foreign and domestic assignments. He has been an active volunteer at Dinosaur Ridge since 2005 where he gives tours for both students and adults. He also does some volunteering with JeffCo Open Space and is on the City of Golden Parks and Recreation advisory board.
