Additional Information:
Snow is amazing! It changes form, insulates, fractures into avalanches, and makes winter survival possible for plants and animals. Join volunteer naturalists to explore the properties of snow, and learn how plants and animals adapt to life in the cold. Bring drinking water, and clothing and boots suitable for cold and windy weather. Ski or hiking poles are recommended due to icy trail conditions. Be prepared to hike about two miles in snow, above 8,000 feet in elevation.
