18aug9:00 am1:00 pmWild I-70 Tour: An Audio Tour Adventure with TEDxMileHigh


Event Details

Join Rocky Mountain Wild and biologist Paige Singer on a journey to learn about the amazing wildlife and wild places along the (Wild) I-70 Mountain Corridor.

We will view the world outside the windshield a bit differently as we travel from Golden to the top of Vail Pass, accompanied by experts (both in person and virtually) who have been studying wildlife along this roadway for years.  Along the way, we will listen to stories from the newly released Wild I-70 Audio Tour, get insider tips for seeing wildlife along the roadway, and learn about why wildlife try to cross this road and how we can help them do it safely.

Near the top of Vail Pass, we will accompany Rocky Mountain Wild biologist Paige Singer and her project partners to their field research site, where we will check wildlife cameras and learn about Rocky Mountain Wild and an on-going citizen science project that aims to understand how roads, specifically Interstate 70, act as a barrier for wildlife. We will explore what it takes to build a wildlife overpass near this spot, learn about the collaborators in this special project and you can ask all your wildest wildlife questions.

Ages 16
