Come join the Science Carnival! We will be exploring life in Boulder Creek - past and present. Touch fossils that came from the Cretaceous Seaway that covered Boulder 65 million years ago, and explore some of the creatures that live in Boulder Creek today, including those that are too small see without a microscope.

This is the first Boulder Science Festival. There are many speakers, activities, and field trips. Our very own Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, Dr. Jaelyn Eberle, will be giving a presentation on Sunday, October 13 at 10am on Eocene Flora and Vertebrate Fauna in Canada’s High Arctic.
