Introduction

Travel across the Kansas prairie to Colorado to explore wildlife and habitats high up in the Rocky Mountains! Students will be lead on excursions to find and identify plants and animals in majestic wilderness. This includes setting motion-sensing trail cameras, to catch a glimpse of critters that are a bit more shy. We will also explore the history of the Rocky Mountains, and how their formation affected the wildlife and habitats of western North America. Students will get to see transitions in animal and plant life, and discuss explanations for these differences with instructional staff. Our adventures also include nocturnal wildlife hikes, looking for owls, foxes, insects, and other night time creatures. We will camp at different locations along the way, and use tools such as GPS units, black lights, spotting scopes, and other tools to learn about how professional scientists investigate the natural world. Along the way, we will emphasize discussion of ideas and critical thinking skills, helping students build knowledge as well as mental tools to tackle complex subjects. The mountains are calling! Let’s go!
