On Saturday June 29, Park Guide Teri Jobe will present a free guided tour at Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site. The 90-minute tour will begin promptly at 10 am at the lower parking area, and will follow the Monument Hill Trail, a distance of a half mile, before concluding at the Monument Hill Overlook.

The tour will describe the massacre and the events leading up to it. Using the experiences of George Bent, a survivor of the massacre, and a variety of interpretive techniques, Park Guide Jobe will invite audience members to explore events in the 1850’s and 1860’s in ways that relate to common experiences people have today.

Participants should dress appropriately for the weather. Please bring water, a hat, sunscreen, and wear sturdy walking or hiking footwear.

For more information, please call the park at 719-729-3003 or visit
