This special event will take place on February’s Full Moon, also known as the Snow Moon, as we use the moonlight (and maybe a headlamp or two) to trek in winter night and learn some of the incredible lifestyles of nocturnal animals and uncover the mysterious of the night sky! We will also be joined by special guest Kate Hale! Kate is a PhD student studying snow science at CU-Boulder. She is particularly interested in the annual timing of water resources in mountainous, snow-dominated regions. Her work gets her outside often, something she enjoys in her free time, too. She is excited to share a variety of snow-related items on the full moon tour, including typical and atypical snow and water cycles in Colorado, average snow water equivalent (SWE), snow dynamics in forests versus open clearings, and snow-grain and snowpack structure.
