The address for the event is 1850 Table Mesa Drive, Boulder, CO 80305. Directions and a map can be found on our website. We have ample parking at the Mesa Lab for all visitors. There will be a uniformed security officer near the building entrance (at the end of Table Mesa Drive) who will be able to answer questions about parking. The officer will guide drivers who have a disability parking plate or placard, or those with passengers who would have difficulty walking from the parking lot, to appropriate parking spaces or to the drop-off location. Please let us know if we can help with any other accessibility needs, by emailing email@example.com. Please do not call security with general questions related to the event. A sign language interpreter will be present at all the Explorer Series lectures.
