Colorado Ecosystems and Native Plants Field Trip
Saturday, May 31, 2014 - 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective
The ecosystems of Colorado range from plains grasslands to the alpine tundra, mountain meadows to sub-alpine forests and all the points in between.
This field trip allows students to study the amazing diversity of plant and animal life that co-exist within these ecosystems and be able to identify each community by physical appearance and other site characteristics.
The class starts and ends in Morrison and we will survey the majority of ecosystems in the state.
The reference text for this course is From Grasslands to Glacier by Cornelius Mutel and John Emerick. The text is currently out of print, but used copies can be found online for purchase.
$72 member, $82 non-member.
