The forest provides many learning opportunities. Education can be gleaned from the diversity of rugged mountains, deep canyons, meadows, and semi-desert country. Elevations range from 4,200 to over 10,000 feet and Flora and fauna are diverse. Pinyon Pines and oaks are found in the lower elevations, and juniper, pine and fir forests are plentiful in the high mountains. Wildlife such as the black bear, mountain lion, deer, and bighorn sheep inhabit the Forest while the bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and the red-tailed hawk soar in the wind.
