CLAUDE WOOD

Being associated with the White River Museum is only natural for Claude Wood since his great-great granddad settled in Meeker in 1885. Working at the museum and visiting with the many visitors is a real joy. Being retired as a wildlife officer with the Colorado Division pf Wildlife, Claude knows the area well and is always ready to share his knowledge with museum visitors. Claude and his wife Peg count it a privilege to call Meeker home. They enjoy camping, fishing and riding their mules in the high country.
