The Big Melt*


In this program with three rotations, students will build awareness and appreciation of the local environment in the winter through snowshoeing or a winter nature hike. They will also study Wisconsin’s forestry history through hands-on activities and design an experiment to investigate how we can solve a common winter issue: ice. This field experience is designed to last a full day with a lunch break included.
