The Crow Canyon Archaeological Center, Colorado, USA

The Crow Canyon Archeological Center in Cortez, Colorado, is dedicated to understanding, teaching, and preserving the rich history of the ancient Pueblo Indians who inhabited the canyons and mesas of the American Southwest. It does this by offering a variety of programs where visitors learn about archaeology in general and about the former inhabitants of this land in particular. Visitors assist the resident archeologists in their excavations and research and "learn by doing." The Crow Canyon Archeological Center also offers several traveling programs in the Southwest and beyond. Addionally, they offer outreach programs to nearby schools and encourage school field trips.

The Sphere Park/Parque de Esferas hopes to encourage this type of hands-on learning and the interest and understanding of the site that accompanies it.
