Observing Life Zone Changes at the Sandia Mountains (FREE half-day trip)

Have you ever wondered how flora and fauna are impacted by environmental changes such as elevation? Come explore the answer to this question during a field day at the Sandia Mountains.

Dr. Yadéeh Sawyer helps us examine changes in life zones with increases in elevation and on either side of the Sandia mountains.  Students learn about scientific observation through a scavenger hunt and by documenting observations, both written and illustrative. A free lab notebook will be provided.  At the end of our trip, we will synthesize our observations. 

This event is free for UNM undergraduates. Prior experience with field work is not required.  This event is especially great for first- and second-year students who are interested in exploring different STEM disciplines or learning more about research. Students should be prepared to hike about 2 miles during this event.

We will leave UNM Main Campus at 8 AM. Free box lunch will be provided. We will return to UNM around 2 PM. Please contact Tara Hackel with any questions related to the event at tshackel@unm.edu or 505-277-0417.
