Winter 2021-2022 SnowSchool

A program of the Winter Wildlands Alliance, SnowSchool is a bridge connecting kids to the world of snow science and winter recreation. Curriculum is aligned with NGSS standards and designed for kindergarten to high school and combines a field trip in the snow with classroom presentations. Students learn about hydrology, winter ecology, wildlife, and snow crystals. They also make a vital connection between the snowpack–the largest reservoir in the West–and the water they drink every day. Wasatch Mountain Institute is proud to be one of 70 SnowSchool sites across the country.

Field Science Day Program

Venturing to the Rock Cliff Recreation Area at Jordanelle State Park, students from schools on the Wasatch front and back will spend a day hiking, exploring, and conducting field science experiments, all while building community with their fellow students and teachers. Small field groups of 8-12 students paired with a school teacher or chaperone and facilitated by experienced WMI staff will rotate through six stations spread throughout the Rock Cliff Recreation Area. Students will achieve SEEd content objectives while exploring riparian and montane habitats and developing their recreation skills. Each station has a different field-science or community building component, including exploring macroinvertebrates and water quality, identifying local flora and fauna, nature journaling, water quality monitoring, and building classroom community. This program will support classroom teachers in learning how to take curriculum outdoors, demonstrating best practices for teaching and learning outdoors, and engaging in experiential learning.
