"Out on a Limb - Forest Canopies" is a traveling exhibit — sponsored by the National Science Foundation and New College of Florida — that will educate students, families, residents, and visitors of southwest Florida about forest canopies and their importance to our daily lives. The exhibit will focus on the biodiversity found in forest canopies, links between the canopy and forest floor, and illustrate the challenges of canopy access by scientists.

The exhibit will contain a traveling rain forest diorama, with scaled models of scientists exploring the canopy and accompanying graphic panels and interactive activities. The display will include a touchscreen kiosk providing additional information about the ecology of the rain forest and its inhabitants and some activities and follow-up lessons in canopy ecology.
