If you are not a member and are visiting this web site, we hope that you will join us. Come to some of our meetings and visit with our members. We have excellent speakers, presentations, and socializing starting at 7 pm most first Mondays of the month (September to May) in Ricketson Auditorium at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

The doors to the west entrance of the museum will be opened until 7:30. After that they will be locked. These doors have to be guarded while they are unlocked so a WIPS volunteer will be watching the entrance until the program begins. No food or beverages are allowed in this atrium.

For book and literature reviews, articles about paleontology and more,
