Master Naturalist Multi-Day Workshop

January 15, 2023

Become a master naturalist during this special workshop covering many aspects of flora and fauna of the area!  

Join Educator Steve Johnson to become a Master Naturalist – Winter Edition! Over the course of the workshop, you will learn about plant and animal adaptations, weather patterns, winter navigation, and survival techniques. We'll study the snowpack, observe snowflakes under a microscope, learn about Rocky Mountain National Park glaciology, study animal tracking, and go on a  snowshoe adventure. Plus, learn how climate change is affecting winter in the mountains. At the end of the course you will be awarded a Master Naturalist certification and celebrate with a campfire!
