In nature, searching for one thing usually means finding other things, but searching and finding are not the same as engaging with a thing.
Perhaps you’ve heard an elk bugle, but have you listened to an elk? Perhaps you’ve seen Colorado’s state bird, but have you watched a lark bunting? Surely you’ve seen an animal eat a plant, but have you seen a plant eat an animal?
This class presents 73 different things worth searching for, finding, and engaging with in the wilds of Colorado. Some might seem trivial, but they collectively represent the ecological core of our state. Searching for them will inevitably lead to the personal discovery of much more.
