This 3-hour environmental education program takes place at 9,000 ft elevation at the Heavenly Mountain Resort via a free Gondola ride from Stateline. Forest Service rangers lead the class through the wilderness to learn snowshoe skills and discover winter adapting animals and signs of these animals. Students fulfill science, language, social science and physical education requirements for 5th grade curriculum during the program as well as pre- and post-visit material for the classroom. Go to the Teacher's Handbook to learn more about the Winter Trek Express Environmental Education program.
