|Saturday, September 24, 2022, 01:00pm
Interested in learning about the Gila River through the story of a man who grew up with the waterway as a common childhood experience? Neil Fuller is a conservationist and rancher, deeply knowledgeable about the river and its history and interested in sharing stories about his intimate relationship with the waterway.
As an experienced living history actor, Neil enjoys portraying his grandfather’s background as a homesteader and rancher along the Gila River, describing how the river sustained his family, and exploring the meaningful connections between the waterway and the household.
Neil also wants to share how the watercourse has changed across time, and what that has meant to both his family and to the rich animal and plant ecology that the river nourishes.
