An installation by expedition geologist and artist Charles Lindsay, who directs the artist-in-residence program for SETI (Search For Extra Terrestrial Intelligence).

We love sharing our prairie spaces with you, and we want to continue offering community access as we responsibly balance the re-opening of our properties to private guest groups.
Starting in June, we will moved to a new Open Trail Day schedule of EVERY SUNDAY, 4-8PM.
We'll likely be making some updates to our check-in station and procedures as restrictions change, but you can always park by the Blue Sage Barn at 1484 Wildcat Creek Rd., and pick up a trail map from a staff person on site.
As the weather warms up, remember to bring water and bug spray with you, as needed. Remember to please leave pets at home.

Play Ball! Behind-the-scenes secrets of baseball, which gained American popularity on an amateur level nearly 200 years ago. You'll want to hop off the bench, grip a bat and belt one out of the park! There are multiple layers of involvement within the sport: player, manager/coach, umpire, scorekeeper or voracious fan. This exhibition contends with how each facet of the game is broken down into math and science.

Wanna take a peek under the hood? The last Sunday of each month, we open select vehicle hoods during business hours so you can see what powers these automotive icons up close!
