Education

GRADE SCHOOL

Beaver Ponds EEC welcomes visits from your elementary school group.  We are happy to work with you and your staff on what particular aspect of environmental education you would like to focus on with your students. We can tailor programs to meet Colorado State Standards for Education.  We make sure that the lessons we teach here at Beaver Ponds are experiential, hands-on, age-appropriate, and most of all FUN so that your students want to learn more about protecting our environment and getting outdoors.  Email Kristin Barrett at kbarrett@beaverponds.org for more information.

Operating under the umbrella of teaching about high altitude ecosystems, sustainability concepts, and climate change, some of our specific programs include:

Beaver Ecology
Watershed
Sustainable Agriculture & Domestic Animals
Greenhouses & Gardening
Medicinal & Native Plants
Renewable Energy
Healthy Forests

“ONCE AGAIN…OUR KIDS HAD ANOTHER MAGICAL DAY AT BEAVER PONDS! THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR VISION WITH OUR FUTURE GENERATIONS.”
