OSHR 1873 - A Personal Guide to Twelve Months of Wildlife

  • Noncredit

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.

Joseph Wood Krutch wrote The Twelve Seasons as if each month were a season unto itself. This novel calendar well describes Colorado wildlife. You know about mountain wildflowers blooming in July and about elk bugling in October, but do you know when and where 20,000 sandhill cranes gather and where most of the world’s brown-capped rosy-finches congregate? Have you seen a kokanee salmon run after they have turned from silver to red?

This class will tell you when and where to experience such wildlife spectacles, including where you can stand in the wise presence of a 2,000-year-old tree to ponder what experience will be next.
