    Welcome to Explorapedia
    Portal to the Exploration of the Colorado Plateau




















Explorapedia was established by Dr. Gary D. Alpert upon his retiring from Harvard and moving to Flagstaff in 2012. In addition to being a Professor at Northern Arizona University, Gary is also a Research Associate at the Museum of Comparative Zoology - Harvard.

Flagstaff is science rich, being the home of the Lowell Observatory, NAU Center for Science Teaching and Learning, Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station, Southwest Biological Science Center (US Department of the Interior), Springs Stewardship Institute, USGS Flagstaff Science Campus, Willow Bend Environmental Education Center, and other scientifically oriented organizations.

Taking advantage of these organizations as well as many retired (and not so retired) scientists, Explorapedia emphasizes Scientific literacy through Citizen science in multiple fields including anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, biology, botany, chemistry, climatology, dendrochronology, earth Science, ecology, entomology, ethnology, geography, geology, history, mathematics, meteorology, myrmecology, ornithology, paleontology, physics, psychology, and zoology.

About this website . . .

This is a fairly normal website but one with multiple personalities depending upon the situation and the need of the user. We use Wikipedia as a primary source and framework, but as we add text and images of our own, we will expand on that framework, allowing the site usability to evolve. As the pandemic continues until fading, patience will be a virtue. Use masks, keep social distancing, wash your hands frequently and stay well!
  • Iterations of this website will also be loaded periodically onto our laptops that we take into the field. Portions of the time that we spend in the wild, we may not have access to the Internet, so as much information as possible will still be there for us.

  • The website will also serve as a study site in addition to all the other uses that websites provide.


Eventually we will set up a page for sending comments and/or email to the webmaster, and many thanks for your patience while this new (since early in 2019) site evolves.
