Meet Martha Maxwell: Costumed Interpretation @ Cozens Ranch Museum

Meet Martha Maxwell – Pioneer Naturalist

Nicknamed the “Colorado huntress” in the mid-nineteenth century, Martha Maxwell was Colorado’s first taxidermist. This shy, petite woman made a major impact on natural history as we know it today. Storyteller Linda Batlin presents a lively one-woman program of how this woman’s love of animals and the natural world along with her artistic abilities led her to create displays we now call dioramas, establish a natural history museum in Boulder, CO immortalizing animals, and represent Colorado at the 1876 Centennial Exposition. She is credited with discovering a new species of owl, the Rocky Mountain screech owl.
