Old Growth Celebration Reception with Featured Artist Eric Jensen
5:00 PM (America/Denver)
Missoula Public Library
Location: 4th floor
Fri 4/7/2023 5:00-7:00 PM
Join us for this first Friday reception to kick off our month long series exploring and celebrating old growth forests! Featured artist Eric Jensen’s artwork will be on display all month. Light refreshments and beverages provided by the Friends of Missoula Public Library. The Old Growth Celebration is a multi-faceted artistic, scientific, and educational program series designed to give Missoula County citizens of all ages the opportunity to engage with the concept of old growth forests. These profound ecosystems hold incredible examples of diversity, community, and sustainability all of which provide intrinsic examples for our own communities. With the Missoula Public Library and spectrUM Discovery Area as partners, we have organized a month long series of events intended to inform and excite the curious minds of Missoula with art works, public lectures, relevant reading lists, and scientific displays. Kids can visit spectrUM for forest ecosystem experiences at the Discovery Bench (2-6 PM, Tuesday through Saturday), including using a microscope to look at real specimens from nearby forests. Our goal is to inspire our communities to see old growth forests as teachers and role models worth protecting.
