Last week the SOLE team traveled across the Rockies to Grand Junction where we hosted Family Nature Nights for Pomona Elementary and Orchard Avenue Elementary. A very special partner, Museums of Western Colorado (MWC) attended to show off some prehistoric artifacts! Did you know that in Grand Junction three dinosaurs species commonly ruled the land!

A Caving Adventure!

Have you ever dreamed of putting on a helmet and venturing into a cave? Well with CaveSim you can live that dream, without the dangers or travel of real cave exploration. CaveSim is an electronic crawl-through cave simulator based in an easily movable trailer. Both kids and adults alike can experience the thrill of caving from their own backyard! Last week CaveSim came out to the Ridgway Elementary Family Nature Night to highlight the joy of caving! Before gearing up to explore the cave simulator, kids are tested on what they may encounter during the adventure. CaveSim staff explore the dangers of caves and what to avoid in order to be safe.
