  1. Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science

    September 27, 2014 - April 26, 2015 @ The Farmington Museum

    Unearth the secrets of an ancient Egyptian world in an interactive exhibition at the Farmington Museum featuring the hidden stories and artifacts of a lost civilization. See a real human mummy, animal mummies, plus scans, forensic facial reconstructions, and for the first time ever, a life-size rapid prototype of a human mummy. Interpret ancient Egyptian art, decipher hieroglyphics and examine material remains using the tools and technology of archaeologists to unearth the mysteries of Egypt, its history, culture, and people. See the 24 minute movie Egypt 3D. Lost Egypt was produced by COSI in cooperation with the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative, and was built by the Science Museum of Minnesota. Artifacts are on loan from the Brooklyn Museum and The Academy of Natural Sciences. Members of the Farmington Museum Foundation & Friends of the Nature Center will receive one free admission. Call to find out more about a Members-Only Preview.

    December 22, 9:00 AM @ Riverside Nature Center

    Join volunteers from the Four Corners Bird Club and the Nature Center in making a winter census of the birds at Chaco Canyon National Monument.

  3. Christmas Tree Recycling

    December 25, 8:00 AM, 2014 - January 11, 2015, 5:00 PM @ Berg Park

    Farmington Clean & Beautiful encourages you to think green when your Christmas tree fades. Bring natural Christmas trees to either of two locations and drop them off to be recycled for this seasonal service during daylight hours. Trees will be collected at Berg Park (in the dirt lot behind Washington Federal Bank) on San Juan Blvd. and at Fire Station 5 on 30th St. near Butler Ave. Trees must be free of all foreign material – if the tree didn’t grow it, it must be removed before the tree is dropped off.
