Embark on a journey back in time and across the Solar System, following the paths of asteroids and comets that have collided with Earth—and those that roam far from home. These ancient objects travel billions of years before reaching Earth, and their impact can be so powerful that just one collision can change the course of life on our planet.

Discovery After Dark: Mountain Lions in Our Backyard
Are there mountain lions living in our backyards? Join us to hear from experts at the Rocky Mountain Cat Conservancy about these wild felines and their habitats, right here in our own backyards. Along with RMCC, students from Cache La Poudre and Blevins middle schools will present on their wildlife camera projects and what they found in their backyards. A portion of the proceeds from this event will support the projects of Rocky Mountain Cat Conservancy.
Presentation will begin at 6:00pm followed by Q&A
$10/$8 for members
From our region’s top predator, the mountain lion, down to the black footed ferret, the Rocky Mountain Cat Conservancy (RMCC) is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting wildlife in the Rocky Mountains through scientific research, community projects, and education initiatives.
