3rd Grade Mountain Ecology

Summit School District

Thanks to the generous support of Vail EpicPromise, the third grade students of Summit County Schools will be attending a program hosted by Keystone Science School (KSS) to study local mountain ecology. This program is designed to supplement the 3rd grade curriculum by taking students into their backyards to learn about our unique forest dynamics, climate change, and how to maintain forest health.


Program Overview

  • Day 1: In-class lesson with a CSU Extension Representative
  • Day 2: Field Day with Keystone Science School (please refer to packing list for items to bring)
