Catamount Outdoor Family Center has partnered with the Winter Wildlands Alliance to become an official SnowSchool!

This program offers a curriculum that encourages students to spend time outdoors while simultaneously learning about their local watershed and environmental stewardship. The goal for SnowSchool students is to recognize the vital connection between their local snowpack and the water surrounding them every day within their local watershed.

The Snow School curriculum, which meets National Science Standards, aims to provide K-12 students with opportunities to experience field-based instruction on snow science and the relationship with their local watershed while encouraging physical activity.

In addition to fostering a greater appreciation and understanding of local watershed, SnowSchool also provides students with opportunities to experience the exquisite and unique offerings of the natural world.

Strapping snowshoes on and heading outside can lead to new understandings of animal track identification, tree species recognition, navigation, and so much more!
