Young Explorers 2012 - Sandia Explorers, 7/30-8/3
Monday - Wednesday, 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Thursday 8:00 a.m. to overnight, returning Friday at 3:30 p.m.
Hike and explore a different life zone of "watermelon" mountain. Four of the seven life zones of North America exist in the Sandias. Ascending in elevation from the base to the crest is equivalent to a trip from the Sonoran Desert in Mexico to the Hudson Bay in Canada. Discover the roles that geology, elevation, and weather play in determining what type of forest grows where and which animals make each forest their home. This session includes field trip transportation, and three meals during the overnight are included. Sessions are limited to 13 participants and taught by two adult instructors. (Entering 4th or 5th Grade in the 2012-2013 School Year)
