Rio Grande Watershed
Conservation & Education Initiative
The hope of the future lies not in curbing the influence of human occupancy - it is already too late for that - but in creating a better understanding of the extent of that influence and a new ethic for its governance.
Due to COVID-19, we will not hold events in the spring or summer of 2020. Please check back for field trip opportunities, in class presentations, and virtual learning experiences coming in Fall 2020.
Stay safe, stay strong, San Luis Valley.
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!
Little to No Cost!
All school and afterschool programs through RGWCEI are completely free of charge. In fact, we offer a travel reimbursement for field trips to maximize your experience and minimize your school's expenses!
