Brrr. Dive Into Winter With Us!
This winter we will be keeping up our time-honored tradition of hosting a Monday-evening seminar series. In the past, our Conservation Courses have offered the community a unique opportunity to dive into diverse topics including the dirt on soil health, the basics of botany, fire ecology, or a deeper exploration of unique critters, such as Corvids, Herps, or Methow mammals.
This winter, we’ll be focusing on how life thrives in our coldest months, by shoveling into the different roles that both biotic and abiotic processes play in the Methow’s winter ecosystem. Over the course of four evening seminars, we’ll learn about chlorophyll, endotherms, hoarfrost, and a variety of seasonal strategies to make it through the winter.
The seminar series will meet February 24th through March 16th, from 6-8pm on Monday evenings. Topics covered will include snow science, photosynthesizing organisms, mammals in winter, and human interactions past and present with winter.
The price for the course is $95, or $30 per class; location TBD. If you have questions or want to register, just contact us!
