Group Programs on the Plains
Experiential learning leaves a lasting impression on students and young people. The takeaway from our preschool – adult programs is a deep appreciation for the pioneer effort as wagon trains crossed Colorado’s high plains some 150 years ago. Schedule now for summer activities and plan ahead for school field trips that will rank as the favorite excursion of the year.
School & Youth Programs
Let the environment be the classroom. Our 1,100 acres of natural prairie land animates education and teaches students to apply scientific concepts in a historical context. Adventures for all age levels are available year-round including programs studying the grassland ecosystem and the early lifestyles of the Cheyenne Indians and Soddy pioneers.
Throw an educational birthday party. Plains Conservation Center sets the stage for a birthday that will be remembered long after the cake and pizza wear off by hosting fun, out of the ordinary activities for children of all ages—where they might just learn something at the same time.
Stimulate scientific discovery early through our prairie preschool activities. Children two to five years old and their accompanying adults explore the natural world through hands-on sensory experiences. Join us on a drop-in basis or for one of our six-week programs. In winter months, arrange for us to bring the educational experience to your preschool group.
Escape the busy city life at High Plains Conservation Center. Whether you want to become a citizen scientist, stargaze on our full moon walks, learn to make cheese, butter, soap or wine or just bask in the beauty of the outdoors, get a change of pace on the prairie through our adult and family programs.
Schedule a scouts getaway. At Plains Conservation Center scouts attend badge workshops, campfires and experience homestead life. Overnights in our tipis or yurts are a summer scout favorite here on the prairie.
