Wings Over the Rockies 2018; Webs & Roots: Talk about Networking! 

This year’s Wings Over the Rockies Festival explores the theme Webs & Roots: Talk About Networking! in recognition of Ecologist Dr. Suzanne Simard who while researching her doctoral thesis discovered that trees use a network of soil fungi to communicate their needs and send each other nutrients through a network of roots and web-type fungi buried in the soil.

With over 100 events to choose from over 7-days, there is a variety of hikes, paddles, presentations and field trips hosted by a large cross-section of educators, wildlife experts, conservationists, ecologists, historians, biologists and more…

Whether its talking and networking to spread a web of ideas, or finding ways that birds depend on trees for nesting, safety and nutrients, or how lakes are networked by trails, webs and roots or having a more global view of how we can live in a more interconnected world that binds together for a stronger system of communication and social networks. Join us for our 22nd annual Festival in the beautiful Columbia Valley to experience ways to connect and network with like-minded people.

Registration starts on Monday April 9th at 9 AM. Many events sell out quickly, so to avoid disappointment, register early at www.wingsovertherockies.org
