Event Description

Summer of Discovery: The Search for Life continues as we search for Life in the Rocks!

The Trails & Open Space Coalition (TOPS) joins us to share about Colorado’s many open spaces and the mulititude of life we can find in those open spaces.

As is TOPS mission here in Colorado, learning about a place and all that makes it up – including any life there, is also a primary mission of NASA and scientists searching for life in the solar system.

The best way to be able to successfully search for life is to first identifiy the best places to look, then to understand them as well as we can so we know the what, where, and how to look.
