MOUNTAIN LION!

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.

The Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Program at Canyons of the Ancients promotes awareness of the exceptional natural and cultural treasures protected by the BLM's National Conservation Lands System. Selected artists spend a week immersed in the landscape, then turn their experience into a memorable piece through their chosen medium.
