The Entrada Institute’s 2013 season is coming to a close. The year has been filled with engaging programs, fun festivals, and other activities that support the natural, historical, cultural, and scientific heritage of the Colorado Plateau. The Entrada board would like to thank the many presenters, musicians, volunteers, and participants.

We invite everyone to join in this culminating event, the annual Friendraiser. Join old friends, make new friends.

Come celebrate an afternoon of food, fun, and friendship to support the Entrada Institute, Saturday October 19 from 2-5PM.

Held at Cougar Ridge Ranch south of Torrey, you can enjoy beverages and hors d’oeurves prepared by Chef Aaron Torrey of the Broken Spur Restaurant.

The afternoon events include a tour of the beautiful Cougar Ridge Ranch (2:00-2:45PM) and a meet and greet including Leah McGinnis, Capitol Reef National Park Superintendent and Erica Walz, Publisher of the Insider.

At 3:10PM, the program continues with a multimedia presentation reflecting on the Entrada Season, presentation of the Ward Roylance Award to local historian Steve Taylor, and the Friend of Entrada Award to Robber’s Roost Bookstore owners, the Scholl Family.

From 4:00-5:00PM, enjoy original music and masterful fiddle playing by Entrada Institute’s former Artist-in-Residence, Kate MacLeod. This outstanding singer and songwriter is a sought after vocalist, fiddler and guitar player. Read a recent article about her at
