Special to the Courier


Arizona is home to some of the crown jewels in the treasure chest that is America's national park system, including Canyon de Chelly, Saguaro National Monument, and Grand Canyon National Park. But it also harbors lesser-known wonders like Chiricahua National Monument, Hubbell Trading Post and the recently-added Agua Fria National Monument.

Today, Saturday, Feb. 22, at 1 p.m., the Phippen Museum, 4701 Highway 89, Prescott, invites the public to join writer, editor, photographer and publishing consultant Gregory McNamee as he takes guests on a visual journey through Arizona's many natural treasures.

McNamee is the author of more than 3,000 articles and 30 books, including "Monumental Places: Arizona's National Parks and Monuments." He is also a contributing editor to the Encyclopedia Britannica, a research fellow at the Southwest Center of the University of Arizona and a lecturer in the Eller School of Management, also at the University of Arizona.

This unique art and heritage presentation is offered in conjunction with the Arizona Humanities Council and designed to enhance the museum's current exhibition, National Parks of the West, running now through Feb. 23. Admittance is included in the price of general admission and free for museum members.

General admission is $7 for adults, $6 for AAA members, $5 for Students with ID, and free for museum members and children twelve and under. For additional information on this or any other event at the Phippen, call 778-1385, or visit their website at www.phippenartmuseum.org.
