“The mountains are calling and I must go.” (John Muir)
Ana and Mary’s Newsletter – September 25th, 2015
It was a beautiful autumn day in the mountains on Thursday. We were all in awe of the stunning aspen trees dressed in bright yellow. We trekked up the rocky trail and ate lunch beside a beautiful mountain lake. We scrambled up the mountainside, touched the trickling snow melt, and slid our hands across what is left of Saint Mary’s Glacier. We are growing our schema about the variety of habitats in our state. By walking through the subalpine up into the alpine our students witnessed how plant life changes with the increase in altitude. Thanks to the many parent volunteers who help make our field trips possible. Prairie Dogs and Owls continued to work on information writing this week. The owls have proudly completed their first information books while the prairie dogs researched and worked on information about prairie dog burrows and predators.
