Standing Short - The story of trees in the Arctic
Do you know what is a ‘spruce’s ass’? Or why the mountain ash has been considered as a sacred tree? The story of the trees in the Arctic is told in Standing short, the new exhibition of the Arctic Centre at the University of Lapland. Welcome to learn wooden facts, see delightful illustrations, hug a tree and laugh at some silly jokes. Read more on the exhibition.
The Science Centre is part of the Arctic Centre of the University of Lapland. It participates actively both in the European Network of Science Centres and Museums (Ecsite) and in the Nordic Science Centre Association (NSCF).
