Pikas, Prairies, and the Climate Crisis Opening Reception
Using stunning field photography and video this exhibit explores the surprising connections between Colorado’s shortgrass prairies and the American Pika. Pikas are a cold-loving species that live in the high-altitude mountains, are threatened by warming temperatures and diminishing snowpack. Their survival may depend on our ability to protect a place hundreds of miles from their alpine home — the Great Plains. Visitors will learn about conservation efforts to connect the dots between these two diverse areas, as well as ways that they can become involved in protecting Pikas, prairies, pronghorn, and more.
