Thursday, July 16th – Mammals of Colorado.
Discover the many species of mammals in Colorado and learn about their interesting life histories. Jump in with lots of hands-on activities with skins, skulls, tracks and scat. Biologist Julie Stiver with Colorado Parks and Wildlife will discuss how these animals fit into their habitats and the techniques used to manage them. A hike in Mueller State Park is included. This class is listed in the Florissant Fossil Beds Seminar Series.
Wednesday, July 29th – Project Archaeology
Have you ever found an arrowhead, piece of pottery or rusty old tool and wondered who left it there? Project Archaeology gives students a basic understanding of how archaeology works and teaches them to respect and protect our nation’s cultural heritage. “Project Archaeology-Intrigue of the Past,” is a program designed for teachers of fourth through seventh grade but anyone would enjoy the contents of the seminar. The program uses archaeology to teach science, math, history, social studies, art, language, and higher thinking skills such as problem solving, synthesis, and evaluation. The program will give an eye opening understanding of the process and a new perspective on archaeological resources. This class is listed in the Florissant Fossil Beds Seminar Series.
Thursday, August 6th – Project Wild
Project WILD captures the attention of students by using wildlife as the topic. As one of the most widely-used education programs of its kind among educators of students in kindergarten through high school, its mission is to provide wildlife-based conservation and environmental education to foster responsible actions toward wildlife and related natural resources.
