Microcosmos of the Roaring Fork Valley
August 3, 2016 @ 9:00 am - August 4, 2016 @ 4:00 pm UTC-6$95.00 – $145.00
The microcosmos, a miniature world contained within larger, more familiar spheres, awaits our exploration this summer in a new workshop that enters the mysterious world of tiny organisms, cryptic interactions, and elusive ecologies. It is a world of hand lenses and microscopes instead of binoculars and spotting scopes. Join us for a two-day exploration of a Lilliputian world rarely seen and poorly understood, yet vitally important to our very survival. As E. O. Wilson says, “It’s the little things that run the world.” Join us this summer to learn how they do it.
