Colorado Climate Change
Local Impacts Workshop Resources
In the fall of 2008, a group of science educators in Colorado and researchers from the University of Colorado gathered at the Mountain Research Station, which is located at the base of the Niwot Ridge Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) facility to explore evidence that climate change in occurring in our backyards.
The workshop included field trips to examine experiments in the subalpine forest and look at the effects of mountain pine beetles on pine trees in the area.
