CONSERVATION & EDUCATION INITIATIVE
Educating youth and community members through collaborations and connections to increase understanding of the San Luis Valley's natural resources & working landscapes
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.
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!
