  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

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.

Anyone can walk among aspens and enjoy the occasion, but a simple story of how a wasp makes it possible for a fungus to help a woodpecker accommodate a bluebird magnifies aspen beauty to something wondrous. Once such a story is known, aspens are forever more beautiful and being among them amounts to far more than a walk in the woods.

This course will present 12 relationships each featuring a linkage of diverse wildlife species. With each link, the life story of one species makes life possible for another. Each relationship will include specific directions about where to find these featured species and what time of the year to go there to find them.

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