Muir put it simply….”climb the mountains and get good tidings…” We’ll hike the trails to discover our unique ecosystem and the tools we need to navigate it.

Mountain Blooms—July 27-30

Why are the flowers different colors?  Why do some smell sweet while others smell bad?  Discover Pollination Syndromes and explore the abundance of Rocky Mountain Wildflowers!

Discover the animals that are creeping through the Rocky Mountain waterways.  Encounter the arthropods, fish, amphibians, reptiles and mammals that make their homes in and around the mountain water.  What will you discover along the rivers, lakes, and streams?
