Canyon Chronicles

First Thursday of each month between 8:30-9:00am

Canyon Chronicles serves all those who love this land; it’s always-new beauty, its long and rich history, and our community’s very unique blend of cultures. All of us here now came before. Some of us just a few days ago. But many of our community trace their history in this land back generations. Some of us, back hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years.

We hope in these programs to focus on matters of importance, and we encourage your thoughts and insights about this current broadcast and the direction or subjects future programs may adopt.  All your ideas are welcome. At the end of our program we will provide information where you may send you suggestions and thoughts.

Canyon Chronicles is hosted by Mike Woodrow and produced in conjunction with the Southwest Colorado Canyons Alliance -- A non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the enjoyment, utilization and safeguarding of Public Lands -- providing volunteer and funding opportunities for Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and the Anasazi Cultural Center.
