It’s time to climb into our first habitat–the alpine habitat way up at the top of the mountains!
As we leave the alpine habitat and head down the mountain, let’s stop and explore the mountain forest.
Sometimes we can find water along the edges of these habitats. Let’s explore the mountain meadow.
It’s been an amazing adventure! We will end in the plains basin or high desert habitat.
