Student Education

Each year, CCA staff and education volunteers work with K-12 schools in Mesa, Delta and Montrose counties to introduce over 2,500 students to their National Conservation Areas through environmental education field trips that are specifically aligned with state curriculum standards.

We have a variety of trips already scheduled for this spring and have listed those below using an asterix to indicate those where volunteer educators (no experience necessary) are needed!
