Life in the Cold: Winter Ecology Workshop
Our February 2018 workshop is full with a full waitlist. To receive information on future registration for our 2020 workshop, please email Katie Phillips at Katie_Phillips@nps.gov.
This Winter Workshop explores the characteristics of winter and the strategies that plants and animals use to survive the challenges of winter in the Rocky Mountains. Participants explore the winter world by snowshoe as they learn about the science of snow and try out lessons for the classroom and the field.
