Snow Shoe Field Trips

Surviving and Thriving in Winter (STW) Program Overview

Surviving and Thriving in Winter (STW) is a two-part science and winter ecology program on snowshoes for grades 3-8 in which students learn about snow science and winter animal adaptations through hands-on activities in the classroom and field. Topics covered correlate to Colorado and national science education standards for each grade.  Durango Nature Studies provides snowshoes for up to 60 students and chaperones per field program.

First, a Durango Nature Studies’ educator visits each classroom for an hour-long lesson to introduce science concepts that prepare students for a field trip. The following week, your class visits our winter site for a half-day field trip. Instructors guide small groups on snowshoes, engaging students with activities, science games, experiments, and guided explorations. These field trips solidify science standards and a sense of place through inquiry based learning in nature.
