The 2015 Fur Trade Symposium, returning to the southern Rockies for the first time since 1988, will inform and entertain a wide-range of attendees on the full scope and diversity of the southern fur trade.

The symposium will place special emphasis on the southern Rocky Mountain trade through scholarly presentations, informal seminars and through Living History representations of those involved in the southern fur trade during its peak.

The symposium will examine the breadth of the fur trade’s effects, including animal populations, people involved in the business, their lifestyles, interactions, economics and more. The conference will enrich scholars, fur trade re-enactors and enthusiasts, students, teachers, the general public and all who have an interest in the history of the fur trade, the growth of the nation, and the distinct cultural interactions of the era. The schedule is still evolving and almost finalized.

Registration for the symposium is now open.
