Change in the mountains, normal or not?

Change in the mountains, normal or not?

Presented by Natural History Museum of Utah at Online/Virtual Space

This week’s investigations focus on change in the Uinta Mountains of Utah–change that’s impacting many mountains in the American West and around the world.

On Monday through Thursday, we’ll focus on the following questions:

Monday: What’s Killing these Trees? Part one

Tuesday: What’s Killing these Trees? Part two

Wednesday: Who wins and who loses in a rapidly changing forest? Part one

Thursday: Who wins and who loses in a rapidly changing forest? Part two

Friday: A question and answer session with our research scientist

Courses are underway now and are:

Facilitated by a professional NHMU educator
Interactive and available free of charge
Offered weekdays beginning at 9:30 AM MDT

These were designed for middle school students, but students of all ages are welcome

You can do some, or all, the classes. And you do not need to do them in order!
