The University of Colorado Boulder's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) is excited to announce our opening of the educational exhibit "Our Living Landscape: Exploring Boulder's Watershed." The exhibit is at the Museum of Boulder from January 31st to March 31st, 2020. Come join us for an evening of celebration at the Open Reception (free to the public) Friday, January 31st, from 5:30 – 7:30 pm!
The Boulder Creek watershed exhibit is a collaboration between INSTAAR’s Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory, Niwot Ridge Long-term Ecological Research program, Center for Water Earth Science and Technology, Mountain Research Station, and many partners including Boulder County, City of Boulder, and United States Geological Survey. The exhibit shares what we’ve discovered about the land, plants, animals, water, and climate of the place we all call home. It features a 3'x6' three-dimensional model of the watershed, info-graphic art panels, videos, and more. We are also hosting K-12 field trips for schools to engage with a team of CU graduate students for “Demo Days” with hands-on activities.
This exhibit is funded by the University of Colorado’s Office of Outreach and Engagement. In-kind contributions provided by INSTAAR, BcCZO, NWT LTER, CWEST, CU Mountain Research Station, Boulder County, City of Boulder, and USGS.
