Pikas, Prairies, & the Climate Crisis (Exhibit)
Categories: Arts & Entertainment Kid Friendly & Family
Date and Time for this Past Event
- Mon, Oct 31, 2022 - Sun, Jan 8, 2023 9am - 5pm
The Museum of Boulder is open daily from 9am to 5pm, but CLOSED ON TUESDAYS.
Using stunning field photography and video this exhibit in partnership with the Colorado Pika Project explores the surprising connections between Colorado’s shortgrass prairies and the American pika. Pikas, a cold-loving species that live in the high-altitude mountains, are threatened by warming temperatures and diminishing snowpack. Their survival may depend on our ability to protect a place hundreds of miles from their alpine home — the Great Plains.
Visitors will learn about conservation efforts to connect the dots between these two diverse areas, as well as ways that they can become involved in protecting pika, prairies, pronghorn, and more.
