Event Series Event Series (See All)

Join us for a series of informal, natural science-based talks highlighting the Rocky Mountain National Park region!

Connecting the public with specialty science, local research, current events, and fascinating creatures, Rocky Mountain Conservancy is eager to collaborate with the Old Gallery to present Science Connections. An extension of the Conservancy’s Field Institute, this speaker series connects expert scientists, historians, and naturalists to the community, bringing high level research to the public in an approachable and comfortable setting. These neighborhood discussions, held on the second Thursday of the month (June – September) will allow time for questions and discussion after the presentation.

These programs are free and open to the public, but space is limited! Should we run out of room, priority will be given to those who have registered in advance.
