A Walk Through Time on South Table Mountain: The Paleontology, History, and Fight Against a 75-Year Quarry @ Golden History Museum
May 4 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

A Walk Through Time on South Table Mountain: The Paleontology, History, and Fight Against a 75-Year Quarry

In-person event. Register on eventbrite.

Attorney Carl F. Eiberger Jr. was instrumental in protecting and preserving South Table Mountain, the “Gateway to the Rockies.” He provided over 24 years (10,000 hours) of free legal work to preserve STM from becoming a 75-year quarry (1975-2050). Carl’s Point on the northeast corner is named in honor of his work. Carl was the leader of “The Coalition to Preserve South Table Mountain,” which consisted of Golden neighbors and citizens. Together they used their expertise to fight for and preserve this historic landmark. South Table Mountain holds much significance in its history, paleontology, and geology. Take a walk through time and learn about the past 62 million years to the present day.
