Program Description

Through activities and observations, students will identify the characteristics of systems found in the mountain environment through the lens of unique creatures like snow fleas. Observations of snow pack levels and exploration into ecological footprints and carrying capacities will help participants become equipped to apply their knowledge to human systems.
