Take a "Walk Through Time" on the UM Oval
10:00 AM
University of Montana
Description:
Take a Walk Through Time during Earth Week & Arbor Week at UM 2019 - April 20th to 28th - open all day.

Imagine taking a walk in which every step takes you back in time a million years. UM is the new steward of the exhibit “A Walk Through Time: From Stardust to Us,” and you can walk through time as you walk around the UM Oval.

The exhibit consists of 90 colorful panels that depict points in time of the 4.6-billion-year life of our solar system and our beautiful planet Earth. The Exhibit will be displayed around the UM Oval during Earth Week & Arbor Week (April 20-28). The display will start by the Grizzly Statue.

The “Walk Through Time” exhibit was imagined by physicist Sidney Liebes, who wanted to inspire people with the magnificent story of life on Earth and provide a cautionary tale of how human actions today threaten Earth’s diversity and stability. Liebes completed the project for Earth Day 1997, and the exhibit was funded by Hewlett-Packard and gifted to the Foundation for Global Community.
