Long before the Museum’s Small Museum Big Stories initiative, the Canyon Legacy was launched to tell stories about the human and natural history of Canyon Country and the Four Corners region. Beginning in 1989 Museum directors, an Editorial Board, and a multitude of regional experts selected story topics and wrote, edited, and published well researched and highly readable stories about life on the Colorado Plateau.
Today, the Moab Museum is pleased to share digitized Canyon Legacy issues featuring articles about the geology, wildlife, people, and events of the region. In doing so, we acknowledge the dedication and resourcefulness of Museum staff and volunteers who made telling these stories a priority, often with limited resources. We’re grateful for their effort to keep these stories alive and vibrant, for even today we refer to articles in these 76 issues for new insights that expand our own storytelling ability.Open Resource
