Digging into Permafrost

Transport to the Arctic to experience the sights and smells of the world’s only permafrost research tunnel! Step into the shoes of a climate science researcher to solve engineering challenges posed by thawing permafrost. Reflect on real stories from people whose lives have been impacted by the changing climate and marvel at their adaptation and ingenuity. Learn how the frozen landscape provides clues to our past, present and future, and discover how your choices can positively impact the environment.

The Kiwanis Club of Danville Foundation and the Charles G. Patterson, Jr. Charitable Foundation have generously provided support for these touring exhibitions.
