The New Community Coalition and Mountain Village Forester Dave Bangert invite you for an educational morning wandering around in the woods on the ski area. "See the Forest and the Trees" continues with the second installment of the forest health tree tour.
Meet: At the top of the Gondola at The Telluride Ski & Golf Nature Center. Take a short trail from the gondola uphill to the Nature Center. We will take a short hike on the Ridge Trail to see the flora and fauna of the area!
Bring: Water, sunscreen, bug repellent, snacks, rain gear, and walking shoes. Dress for the weather - we will cruise around - rain or shine.
Learn more about: Our forests! And what lives in them, the types of trees, the wildlife and the things that love them - spruce budworms, bark beetles and what they do to challenge our trees. We will also discuss SADS – Sudden Aspen Decline and the stress our aspens are seem to be under!
