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.


Land Education

Each year, CCA turns our National Conservation Areas into outdoor classrooms for thousands of students from Mesa, Delta, and Montrose counties! Local K-12 students have the opportunity to connect to the outdoors by learning about a variety of topics in a hands-on, exciting, and standards-based way.

River Education

CCA provides authentic and meaningful river education experiences for hundreds of students each year! Local students get to float the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers for place-based, experiential education. This unique experience allows students to connect to their public land in exciting ways!
