The John Wesley Powell Museum hosted an event on Saturday for locals that included activities for all.
Powell After Hours aimed to educate locals about the museum. Staff offered tours of areas of the museum the public doesn’t usually see. They also hosted a variety of activities, including a scavenger hunt in which people could earn a free coin commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Powell expedition. Also, a boat-making craft for kids and other prizes rounded out the evening.
Author James Aton spoke about his new book, “The Crimson Cowboy,” and stayed after to sign books. A fire was setup outside with chairs and a place to mingle by the river.
The event was attended by the community and tourists throughout the evening.
