Some of the greatest ecological diversity and scenic beauty in Utah exists in the forest and alpine environments. Throughout these systems, temperature,  elevation, and precipitation play an important role in defining plant and animal communities and their interactions. Come join us while we explore these systems and learn about how they function, the plants and animals that live there, and how they are managed.  Class size is small in order to maximize your opportunities for learning and having fun!

Each Utah Master Naturalist Program module consists of 40 hours of instruction, at least 50% of which is spent in the field.  Classroom and field activities will include instructor presentations, guest presentations on relevant resource issues, small group activities, and open discussions.  There is an option to receive three (3) USU credits for an additional fee.  All participants must download and understand the Program Introduction Letter available here.

Due to the nature of the Mountains class, we will be walking and hiking over some uneven terrain at relatively high altitudes.  While we do our best to accommodate people of all abilities, please contact Mark at if you have any concerns.

This program will be taught by Kathy Donnell from Wasatch Mountain State Park.
