The Power of Field Programs-2nd grade on top of Aspen Mountain

Posted in Kids' Corner

Every year, 2nd grade students from Aspen, Basalt, and Crystal River Elementary schools ride up the Silver Queen gondola, duck the ski boundary rope, and head out Richmond Ridge on a snowshoe challenge course. As they walk, signs appear that invite students to try and experience the winter world as one of the winter animal residents that inhabit our local subalpine landscape.

Toklat Workshop | Snow Awareness

Spend an afternoon practicing your snow awareness with Naturalist Alex Tarika! The workshop will include an overview of the causes of avalanches and how to recognize them. We'll go outside and practice digging snow pits to analyze snowpack and assess snow conditions. We'll also practice using beacons and efficient digging approaches. Most of the day we'll be outside in the meadows and woods surrounding Toklat, so dress warmly! You do not need to have your own beacon or a backcountry ski setup for the workshop, but bring your beacons if you have them.

This is a free workshop, donations welcome.
