Alice Eastwood was a renowned scientist, a botanist with a great love of adventure.
She is the embodiment of female equality; her colleagues included Alfred Russel Wallace, best known for conceiving the theory of evolution through natural selection, and Asa Gray, the Harvard professor who wrote the seminal manual on American botany.
Eastwood began her fervent career in Denver, Colorado, and came to the Four Corners on "botanizing" expeditions, basing out of the Wetherill's Alamo Ranch in Mancos.
Becoming the curator of botany at the California Academy of Sciences, a post she held for over 50 years, Eastwood was a scientific pioneer that gifted those around her with her knowledge and outgoing spirit.
