Nature Knowledge Days



Starting out over a decade ago as the Nature Scavenger Hunt, Nature Knowledge Days has grown into the flagship CCA/BLM education event in McInnis Canyons NCA and Dominguez-Escalante NCA. Collectively getting roughly 1,000 3rd graders out into the NCAs to learn every year across Mesa and Delta counties.

This program would not be possible without the expert volunteers and great partners that help run our education stations. Paleontologists, geologists, biologists, archaeologists, and many others from the BLM, Museums of Western Colorado, Palisade Insectary, The Nature Connection, and many others come together to educate the youth of the Western Slope, all at no cost to the students.
