In this program, park rangers from Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park broadcast live to your classroom from a desk made of snow, located at the base of the Teton Range. During this interactive "talk show," targeted for grades 1-5, students learn how wildlife adapts to weather and an extreme climate. Snow Desk is available January through March on selected days. Programs are available on a first-come, first served basis, and Skype technology is required.
