FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 21, 2010—Camp Discovery’s “Get with the Flow” camp (July 26-30) is honored to have Seth Warren spend a day rafting down the Animas with us! Seth is a professional kayaker, athlete-with-a-cause, and an enthusiastic biofuels promoter who converted a Japanese fire truck into a biodiesel road warrior and drove it from Alaska to Chile. His award-winning documentary, Oil + Water, promoted biofuels through education and kayaking. His new Elements Tour (and future documentary) focuses on inspiring and educating youth about alternative energy and sustainable life choices.
“Get with the Flow” campers will explore creepy crawlers and aquatic life under microscopes, go fly fishing, perform river energy experiments, and make and race their own boats. Durango Discovery Museum’s Camp Discovery offers unique, week-long, hands-on science camps that encourage kids to build, create, and explore all aspects of science.
For information on all Camp Discovery programs and to register your 9-12 year old for this camp, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, visit www.durangodiscovery.org, or call (970) 259-9234.
The Durango Discovery Museum, opening October 14, 2010, at the Powerhouse, will be a unique interactive museum where visitors can explore science and energy topics of all kinds. Phase II plans include remodeling the two buildings currently on the 1333 Camino del Rio site and creating a river-facing public plaza around the existing smokestack, all to accommodate the planned interactive science center, labs, workshops, event space, and offices. The museum will be an anchor for historic downtown Durango and a catalyst for revitalizing the city’s riverfront. Housed in the country’s oldest surviving coal-fired, steam-generated AC power plant, the museum's interactive discovery and science exhibits promise to “spark curiosity, ignite imagination, power exploration.”
