This Watershed Investigations course will be held at Swaner EcoCenter in Kimball Junction (Park City), and is in partnership with the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter. Class times are 9am-5pm starting Monday, July 10, and ending Friday, July 14.
This is an adult education program that is open to participants 18 years of age and older. Exceptions for teens as young as 15 may be made if a parent/guardian is also registering for the course.
From high alpine lakes and streams to the Great Salt Lake and unique temporary wetlands of the arid desert, Utah has a vast diversity of aquatic ecosystems that interact with each other throughout, and across, watersheds. Come join us while we explore these ecosystems and learn about how they function, the plants and animals that live there, and how they are managed. Class size is small in order to maximize your opportunities for learning and having fun!
Each Utah Master Naturalist course consists of 40 hours of instruction, most of which is spent outdoors. Classroom and field activities will include instructor presentations, guest presentations on relevant resource issues, small group activities, and open discussions.
Due to the nature of the Watersheds course, we will be walking and hiking over some uneven terrain, often in wet environments. While we do our best to accommodate people of all abilities, please contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
All course materials are available for download here. It is highly recommended that you read them before the start of the course.
