Forest Ecology

An in-depth study of local Colorado ecosystems, students explore wildlife and plant ecology, adaptations, tracks and signs, and the complex system by which all things in an ecosystem are connected.

Forest ecology can be chosen any time throughout the year. During the winter months, a special focus will be placed on adaptations utilized by plants and animals for survival within the harsh winter conditions.
