Nature St. Vrain event to highlight SVVSD's environmental education
By Amy Bounds, Staff Writer, Times-Call
About 70 students are planning to present projects, including students from Longmont's Westview Middle School who are part of the Plains to the Park project led by science teacher Dan Cribby.
For the project, now in its sixth year, Cribby and the students are monitoring motion activated cameras in Rocky Mountain National Park and at Button Rock Preserve near Lyons, documenting wildlife and collecting data.
About once a month, Cribby takes students to the locations to change camera batteries, reposition cameras, clean lenses and collect memory cards.
The students also regularly present at Rocky Mountain National Park's research conference and have had a photography exhibit at the University of Colorado. Former participants, now in high school and college, serve as mentors.
