Who Can Participate?

Our programs are available to pre-K through 12th grade in all schools in the San Luis Valley. We offer a wide variety of educational topics and programs and work flexibly with each group to best meet your needs.


RGWCEI works alongside many organizations in water & soil conservation, land management, and riparian restoration. Our partners help us provide a rich learning experience for all natural resource topics.


RGWCEI offers programs to meet in class needs, field experiences, afterschool, summer activities, and integrated person/virtual learning experiences!
