Boulder Creek watershed exhibit
The University of Colorado Boulder's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR) has an educational exhibit "Our Living Landscape: Exploring Boulder's Watershed" at the Museum of Boulder from January 31st to March 31st, 2020.The Boulder Creek watershed exhibit is funded by the University of Colorado’s Office for Outreach and Engagement and 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, and 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 info-graphic art panels, a 3'x6' three-dimensional model of the watershed, 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.
