Winter Explorers | Snowmastodons

Are you ready to enjoy some action-packed winter days at ACES? Become a Winter Explorer and discover a winter wonderland first-hand at the Hallam Lake nature preserve. You will examine animal tracks, build a snow cave, make winter art creations, learn winter survival techniques, and investigate how the natural world copes with this harsh season.
Each day our educators will separate winter explorers into different groups for age-appropriate activities.

Dec 21 - Snowmastodons - Travel back in time to learn about the great prehistoric beasts that once lived in the mountains around Aspen and Snowmass.  We'll explore real fossils, tell ancient migration stories, and track mammoths in the timeless wilds around Hallam Lake.

Register for one or more days - Fun in the snow is the main focus of this series but various winter-world components will make each day unique and interesting for repeat explorers.

WHAT TO BRING: Wear appropriate winter clothing including snow pants and jacket, mittens and hat. Bring extra gloves and hat, bring lunch and water. Meet at ACES Field Study Center at 9:30am!

HOW TO GET THERE: Please walk, bike, bus, carpool, or ski to ACES sites whenever possible (yes, you really could cross country ski to ACES when there is enough snow). Parking at all sites is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet!
