Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter’s Field Trip to Park City

Park City on 3/27/2018 10:29:20 AM


The Swaner EcoClub, an EpicPromise nonprofit partner, is an environmental education and eco-service club for middle school students in Summit County, UT. Their projects and activities vary year to year based on the interests of members. In addition to learning more about sustainability and wildlife identification, this year their interest surveys indicated that they would like to learn more about survival skills in the outdoors, including snow safety.

After an afternoon filled with gondola rides, beacon practice, sledding on shovels, and collecting trading cards from the avalanche dogs, EcoClub members left more prepared to take on the backcountry, and loved the whole experience!
