- A poster featuring work from the SCAPE project was one component of a one-day Behind-the-Scene Open House
event at the Royal Alberta Museum on September 2 2005. This event was part of the Centennial Weekend
celebrations. The poster was displayed at a station featuring research from the Quaternary Environments program.
Museum staff members discussed the research and work of the program with dozens of visitors
throughout the day (10 am - 3 pm).
- Images of reference pollen samples and winter fieldwork (lake coring) were featured in an
exhibit in the lobby of the Provincial Museum of Alberta. The exhibit featured "behind the scenes"
displays from the thirteen curatorial programs at the Museum. The exhibit opened in summer 2004,
closed February 14 2005, and was called More than Meets the Eye... at the Museum!
