If you’ve ever thought about joining the Heard Museum Guild, the museum’s dedicated corps of volunteers, a general membership meeting is held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to April, except December. After a social from 9:30 to 10 a.m., a featured speaker takes the lectern from 10 to 11 a.m., followed by a business meeting from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Come and meet some of the people whose time, talent and energy are indispensable to making the Heard such a special place.
This month’s featured speaker is Todd Bostwick. Todd was the city of Phoenix’s archaeologist at Pueblo Grande for 21 years, and is currently senior research archaeologist for Verde Valley Archaeology Centre. He has published numerous articles and books on the history of the Southwest, its history and prehistory.
A frequent presenter at the Heard, Bostwick’s topic is “Salt and its Trade Throughout History,” which will include the Mayans, the Gulf of California and the Zuni Sacred Lake.
