Was “commerce king” on the Old Spanish Trail, or were there significant additional factors that motivated and influenced historic travel and deserve further consideration in research and interpretation of the Trail?  How did clarion-logothe historic, natural  environment – plants and wildlife – sustain and/or affect early travelers and their livestock  – and how has that environment  changed since the early 1800’s? How can our members and our community help to protect and preserve the trail in their area? Learn how quality photographs can help interpretation, education, preservation, and management , and receive tips from a professional!

Those are just some of the topics to be explored  at  the 2016 Old Spanish Trail Association (OSTA) Conference July 29 – 30 in Grand Junction, Colorado at the Clarion Inn. With the theme, “Most Arduous…Least Respected – Colorado’s Old Spanish Trail,” the conference is sure to be rich in history, provoke questions, and demonstrate that history is alive and well on the trail.

Feel free to call Vicki Felmlee, the Colorado Director, at 970-245-8484 or email her at with any questions.
