OSHR 1861 - One Day at Barr Lake

  • Noncredit
  • Off-Campus

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Sally Carrighar’s 1944 book, One Day on Beetle Rock detailed the lives and life processes of a single place on a single day in California’s Sierra Nevada. Her 1947 book, One Day at Teton Marsh, extended the theme to the Rocky Mountains and inspired Walt Disney to make it a documentary film. This day-long course applies the theme of Beetle Rock and Teton Marsh to a man-made wildlife haven on the extreme western fringe of the Great Plains. It is a day of casual walking, of observing and absorbing, of discovery and learning. Along the way you just might find a tiny piece of yourself.

  • Bring water, snacks, and a lunch.
  • Wear suitable clothes and shoes or boots for a day of casual walking.
  • Bring rainwear.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
