The Mountain Research Station welcomes K-12 Program Operators to partner with us to use the station for instruction in environmental sciences. At this time the Mountain Research Station does not directly offer K-12 programs with curriculum, but instead we partner with program operators who have their own curriculum and teaching staff/volunteers. The station can provide facilities and site support for visiting K-12 program operators. Please contact us to discuss your program as well as your facility and support needs. Day programs as well as overnight programs can be supported. Please visit our settings and facilities page as well as our schedule of user fees for details on available facilites and fees.
All program operators must comply with the Mountain Research Station Child Protection Policy.
The CU Public Outreach and Office of Engagement has recently awarded a grant to the Mountain Research Station to develop and construct 3 interpretive nature trails with an emphasis on plant and animal ecology, hydrology, geomorphology, forestry, and atmospheric science. The trails are intended to support self-guided tours as well as provide a platform for guided tours. Trails will be constructued in summer/fall of 2019 with possible use opportunity in late fall of 2019.
