The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is the Rocky Mountain Region’s leading resource for informal science education. Our mission is to be a catalyst and ignite the community’s passion for nature and science. The Museum envisions an empowered community that loves, understands, and protects our natural world. As such, a variety of engaging exhibits, discussions and activities help Museum visitors celebrate and understand the wonders of Colorado, Earth, and the universe. The Museum is located at 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver, CO, 80205. To learn more about the Museum, visit dmns.org, or call 303-370-6000. Many of the Museum’s educational programs and exhibits are made possible in part by the citizens of the seven-county metro area through the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District.

Expedition Health ® is not simply another exhibit about the human body. Expedition Health ® is about YOUR human body-how it is constantly changing and adapting in ways you can see, measure, and optimize through the choices you make. In the exhibition gallery, visitors will experience highly-interactive, highly-personalized activities, immerse themselves in a theater experience that will engage all of their senses, look at microscopic cells from their own bodies in a laboratory, participate in live demonstrations and programs, and meet new “buddies” who will help them learn about their health.

“In my experience, nothing creates a better environment for a great conversation than time shared in the kitchen.” – Fr. Leo

This community is a Secular Institute of Pontifical Rite.  He is the Founder, Host, and Director of Grace Before Meals, an international apostolate to help strengthen families and relationship through God’s gift of a family meal. He is also establishing a non-profit organization called “The Table Foundation” with the mission to elevate culture and family life, one meal at a time.  Along with his priestly duties, Fr. Leo is the host for the TV Show Savoring our Faith on EWTN, Co-Host for the radio show Entertaining Truth on Sirius XM Radio, bestselling author, contributor for newspaper and magazines, and rated as one of the best speakers for the New Evangelization.  Fr.

Leo’s presentations, retreats, parish missions, and keynote talks have brought diverse audiences closer to the Lord’s Table.
