Events / Snow to Stream: A Workshop and SNOTEL Field Trip - March 9

Snow to Stream: A Workshop and SNOTEL Field Trip

In Colorado, snow is more than a type of weather; it's a way of life. What might be less apparent is what snowpack means in terms water, soil moisture, and forest health, and how climate variability is impacting it all. Join Water Education Colorado and Roaring Fork Conservancy for this day-long workshop and field trip exploring the nexus between climate, snow, and water!  

This workshop and field trip will be geared toward educators, but is open to the public and will be interesting for anyone wishing to learn more about these topics. Participants will spend the morning hearing from a variety of experts and enhancing their water and climate science literacy. The afternoon will feature a unique opportunity to visit a SNOTEL site at the top of McClure Pass! Participants will learn how to conduct a snow course survey and will then have the opportunity to collect samples themselves. We'll finish the day by snowshoeing to the actual SNOTEL site. Participants will walk away with the knowledge and resources to educate others about snow science, climate, forest health and more. For the draft workshop agenda, click here

Lunch will be provided. 

What to bring: SNOWSHOES ARE REQUIRED! If you don't have snowshoes, please check the appropriate box when registering and we will provide a pair for you to use. In addition, please bring your own reusable coffee mug, water bottle, and snow appropriate clothing for the field trip portion of the workshop. 

 

Other information: We will be asking participants to carpool from the Redstone Inn to the top of McClure Pass for the field trip.
