Here are a few places we plan to visit during the 2014 GRI Field School for Teachers:
Florissant Fossil Beds – Where there are fossil trees…
And many other amazing animal and plant fossils, some of which we may be able to collect.
The Butterfly Pavilion – Where the butterflies are amazing.
But it isn’t just butterflies…
Or even just insects.
The spectacular Garden of the Gods.
Cave of the Winds – One of the highest show caves in the United States.
The Mollie Kathleen Mine – A fascinating introduction to some economic geology as well as some rapidly forming mineral formations.
Can you see the hadrosaur tracks and fossil tree impression? You will when you visit this site in person.
Dinosaur trackways at Dinosaur Ridge.
The amazing Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
The mighty Rocky Mountains.
Our neighbors in Denver.
