Community Education

Throughout the year, CCA hosts a variety events and outings, connecting the local community to our NCAs through education and awareness. We offer free community outings as well as our Adventure Series trips, which help us generate revenue to support our youth education programs. We have an event for everyone to enjoy!

Community Events

Earth Science Lecture Series - Join experts from across the country as they discuss the history and significance of the geology, paleontology, and science of the NCAs and surrounding areas!

Community Hikes - With all the accessible trails in our NCAs, there are endless opportunities to learn about the landscape. From archaeological learning tours to plant ID hikes, we host expert led outings throughout the year.

General Events - We stay busy year-round hosting fun events around the Grand Valley. Stay up-to-date on all our local events including BANFF Mountain Film Festival, our annual Hot Tomato fundraiser, and more!

Adventure Series

Colorado Canyons Association is proud to be an outfitter for educational tours and adventures in our three National Conservation Areas here on Colorado's western slope. Whether you are looking to float the Colorado River and learn about the rich human history or explore the wild high deserts in search of ancient fossils, CCA provides educational classes, trips, and tours to enrich your experience in our NCAs. All proceeds go directly towards getting more kids outside!
