Charles Christopher Parry: King of Colorado Botany 

When: May 24-Dec. 31 2012

Hidden somewhere between granite deposits, an enormous parking lot, hordes of Texans and a donut shop, there is, in fact, life to be found on Pikes Peak. It was Charles Christopher Parry — so-called "King of Colorado Botany," in spite of his famed selflessness — who collected and documented dozens of unidentified plant species there and elsewhere in Colorado. Granted, he had the advantage of doing so on a wilder Peak, in 1862. Check out his discoveries and more at the free exhibit on Parry at the Manitou Springs Heritage Center (517 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs; manitouspringsheritagecenter.org) between 11 and 5, Thursdays through Mondays, through December. — Wyatt Miller
