The Conifer Historical Society will feature the history of Denver Mountain Parks with an exhibit and programs from December through February.

The program begins at 1:00 pm at the LIttle White Schoolhouse, 26951 Barkley Road in Conifer. Advance tickets are $8 for members and $10 for guests. Proceeds benefit the Little White Schoolhouse. Reserve and purchase your tickets at or call 303-­‐396-­‐5975.

A free, Denver Mountain Parks exhibit will be open from 10:00 -­‐ 2:00 on Saturdays and the first Tuesday of December, January, and February. Denver Mountain Parks are located along the Front Range, including Evergreen and Conifer.
