Bettie Courses

Bettie Courses come from the work of Beatrice “Bettie” Willard, who was a foundational instructor to Rocky Mountain Conservancy. Her research conducted on Alpine Tundra ecology has been instrumental to mountain ecology, and her advocacy all throughout the state of Colorado has left a legacy for all women who value land stewardship and conservation. Standing in her shadow, Bettie Courses will be offered through the Field Institute with a focus on accessible programs that introduce women, those that identify as women, to the outdoors. Courses have an emphasis on science and ecology, as well as skill and confidence building.
