Calling all aspiring naturalists ages 12-15! Join The Land in a week-long dive into the short grass prairie of Colorado. We will be covering plants, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, birds, and overall ecosystem interactions. Throughout the week, students will construct a final presentation about a related topic of their choice and present it on the final afternoon. Family and friends are invited to join us on the last afternoon to celebrate the students’ accomplishments. Due to the heat of the summer and the lack of trees in the area, participants should be prepared to spend the majority of the day outside – closed-toe shoes, water, and sunscreen are expected to be brought daily. Lunch will not be provided but should be brought. Participants must be available for the entire week.
