Developed by the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife, this exhibit addresses the growing issue of human encounters with mountain lions.
Recent decades have seen a dramatic rise in lion sightings and dangerous encounters on the urban fringes of Western cities. In a few rare cases, there have been fatalities.
This exhibit blends science, history, and art to promote understanding of this predator and its long, historic relation with people.

"MUSEUM ON THE GROUND"
Artwork by Cortez-area 4th grade students
Museum on the Ground was an educational program that took place in the fall of 2013 at Lowry Pueblo-- an ancestral Pueblo village within Canyons of the Ancients National Monument-- involving more than 200 students from seven local schools. Students enjoyed the opportunity to learn about life at Lowry Pueblo nearly a thousand years ago, including how the ancient people made use of the plants, animals, and rocks that surrounded them. The students expressed their experiences through drawings and paintings.
The program was created and guided by Crow Canyon Archaeological Center educators and Anasazi Heritage Center staff and volunteers. Students also were excited to engage with members of the Ute Mountain Ute tribe, who call the area home today, learning about Ute history and listening to their stories.
Please join us for the opening celebration at 1:00 PM on Saturday, February 15.
