The MRS maintains a list of plant (primarily vascular), mammal, and bird species that have been observed in the area around the MRS up to Niwot Ridge, including subalpine forests (lodgepole, aspen, and spruce-fir), subalpine meadows, alpine communities, and scree and talus slopes. Please contact Bill Bowman to report any new findings that should be included in the lists.
Field courses are designed to provide students a hands on field research experience. Enrollment is low and each course emphasizes informal interaction with the instructors and fellow students. Course credit is readily transferable to other institutions and meets the application requirement for CU's Environmental Studies program.
