Outdoor Museum on the Ground at Lowry Pueblo is a collaborative field day offered by the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and the Bureau of Land Management's Canyons of the Ancients National Monument and Anasazi Heritage Center. Now in its second year, the program has reached over 400 participants.
