'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 science and learn about the impact that our actions have on our environment!
Rugged Research programs are led by park rangers, naturalists and outdoor educators who use innovative, experiential, learning methods and an extensive knowledge of our parks to guide students on a journey of discovery to help build a deeper connection with the natural world.
