Winter Field Camp 2020
Updated: Feb 13
20cm of snow delayed them by a day, but these students and teachers would not be denied their winter field experience! They used densiometers to observe how canopy impacts snow depth and ecosystem function. They were introduced to lynx ecology through gps and triangulation data, and even set a camera and cage trap. They continued to develop their field journal skills by recording quantitative, sensory and qualitative data. And they had this to say about the experience:
"This is so different from learning in books. I can walk around a tree and see it from all sides, touch it and feel the differences in one tree or several trees. I can see everything... and everything AROUND everything."

"This isn't about school. This is about the environment and doing my own research. I can remember things better because I'm excited and engaged. This is a safe spot to
be free and learn."
