Paint Mines Interpretive Park

The Paint Mines Interpretive Park is one of El Paso County’s unique open spaces. The Paint mines are named for their colorful clays that were collected by American Indians to make paint. Brightly colored bands, caused by oxidized iron compounds are found in varying amounts through out the many different layers of clay.

Four members of the Evergreen Camera club took a trip to explore and photograph these fantastic geological formations. Join us for an in-person presentation of what they discovered! We will meet on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 at 6:30 for social time and 7:00 for the presentation in the Evergreen Fire Station Auditorium. We will have NO ZOOM for this meeting.

New members, students and guests are welcome.

Join us at the fire station:
