The Cave Creek Museum's Featured Exhibit this year revisits the legacy of Geoffrey Platts, conservationist, naturalist, and "Desert Crusader". Geoffrey Platts lived a very simple life and believed it was important for people to reduce, recycle and reuse materials to help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away and reduce human's carbon footprint on the Earth. Learn a few crafts that will help you recycle everyday "throw-away" items by creating something useful from them!
Sarah Ziker has been a part of the Daughters of the American Revolution since 2002. Exploring her family and finding connections to history has become a passion of her. She quickly developed a love of genealogy and helping others join the DAR through researching their families.

These Patriots vary between farmers who helped feed the Continental Army to a 15 year who was part of the Boston Tea Party. Sarah now serves Arizona Dar as the State Recording Secretary and is the National Vice Chair of the Membership Task Force. She is an Honorary Regent of the Black Mountain Foothills Chapter in Cave Creek. Have you always heard family legends that your great-great-great-grandfather fought in the American Revolution? With the skills and knowledge she developed tracing her family tree, Sarah can guide you in your own genealogical investigation.
