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. Â 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. Â 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.
