Niwot Ridge

LOOKING Closer

This camera is located at the headwaters of the Boulder Creek watershed on Niwot Ridge. University of Colorado Boulder’s Niwot Ridge LTER is a Long-term Ecological Research Program aimed to study air, snow, water, soil, microbes, lakes, trees, flowers, and animals in the high mountains of the Colorado Rockies. Their mission is to better understand how our complex mountain systems are changing and better predict the future of the many critical services these systems provide to all of us living downhill — in Boulder, in Colorado, and beyond. The University of Boulder’s Mountain Research Station is located several miles below the ridge.
