Winter Ecology

The winter season in a high mountain environment is a unique and special experience. Animals and plants develop incredible adaptations to survive the mountain environment both during the warm, dry summer as well as the harsh, cold winters. During a winter ecology program, students will learn about high mountain wildlife, their unique adaptations, and their relationship with the beautiful yet threatening environment- all while cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.

Exploration

Teachers can prioritize the following content areas:

  • Human Impacts
  • Interactions
  • Physical Changes in Snow
  • Winter Ecosystems

Research

Students will learn about the scientific process through a winter ecology-based research project. Students create their own scientific question and collect data points through the completion of a forest plot survey.

Forest Health

Students will study the relationship of humans and the forest through the study of forest management techniques. Students will be provided with background information before being asked to formulate their own forest management policy recommendations.

Wildlife Management

Students explore the relationship of land management practices and the impact upon wildlife. Following the program students will have an understanding of wildlife corridors, issues and interests within wildlife management, and practices land managers use to balance development and its impact on wildlife habitat.
