Winter Ecology on Snowshoes
Monday, January 6, 9am-4pm | Ages 7-10 | $95
Science Learning Laboratory (East Campus)
Spend the day immersed in a fun snowshoe learning adventure in the sub-alpine ecosystem! We will head out to either Brainard Lake or Mud Lake seeking peak snow conditions (if snow conditions are good, we may stay in the Boulder County area). The day will be spent learning about local mammals and their adaptations. We’re sure to find plenty of tracks as we use our scientific observation skills and newly acquired tracking knowledge to assess “who goes there”! We’ll dig a snow pit, learn basic snow science and how plants and insects adapt to such extreme environments. Bundle up and join us for a fun day in the snow!
Please note: Snowshoes will be provided. If you prefer to use your own, you may do so.
