Field Course: Ecosystem Interactions - Finding the Balance Pt 2

Ecosystem Interactions: Finding the Balance Pt 2 (A Natural History Immersion Experience along the Gunnison River)

Program Details


Immerse yourself for 3 days in the wild and secluded beauty of the Gunnison River Canyon as you float westward from near Delta Colorado accompanied by a teacher-trainer and naturalist from the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Explore the interactions that occur every day in nature. See how humans continuously affect these interactions.

Use your experience to:

  • Connect your student to their environment in a way that creates an “essential nature literacy” that promotes both cognitive development and responsible citizenship.
  • Gain important introductory background knowledge about topics in your science and social studies curricula including: resource management, ecology, geology, western history and astronomy.
