After School


Rugged Research offers after-school programming to elementary schools across the front range. Our after-school program brings Rocky Mountain Park Rangers and Naturalists to your child's school to immerse students in the wonders of nature and science. Each class takes place outside in the school yard or a local park where students are able to have close encounters with nature's wonders!

Colorado has wondrously diverse ecosystems, which our program uses as a giant, learning laboratory to help students fall in love with nature and learn about the impact of their actions on the environment.  Our program extends this learning and helps students  make connections to larger global environmental issues. Rugged Research helps students develop a more mindful awareness of their everyday encounters with the natural world.

  • The Secret Life of Trees
