Two Colorado Rocky Mountain School students took part in EcoFlight’s Flight Across America last week. The two students bravely flew to Jackson on a small Cessna, piloted by Bruce Gordon. This program (organized by Jane Pargiter and Krysia Carter-Giez) is designed to involve, and inform, high school age students about issues regarding biodiversity and conservation using flight and ground-based education. The goal is to introduce students to a broad range of perspectives and show them, via flight, how these issues personally impact their lives and the world around them. The two CRMS students studied climate change as it relates to the Mountain Pine Beetle and the effect it is having on lodge pole forests in Colorado and the white bark pine in Wyoming.
