Since 1997, Roaring Fork Conservancy has taught students about the precious resource that unites our valley — water. Watershed education programs are available to school, youth and civic groups year round. All our programs incorporate inquiry learning, hands-on activities, and relevant place-based content for students in the Roaring Fork Valley. Our programs are taught at your school classrooms, field locations throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, and at the River Center located in Basalt, Colorado.
All programs are correlated to the Colorado Academic 2020 Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and North American Association of Environmental Education Standards. We strive to help teachers meet curriculum needs.
Our vision is that students in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond, will gain a connection to our watershed. Through hands-on experiences, students will learn about their rivers creating value and awareness through exploration.
Since 1996, Roaring Fork Conservancy has inspired people to explore, value, and protect the Roaring Fork Watershed. We bring people together to protect our rivers and work hard to keep water in local streams, monitor water quality, and preserve riparian habitat.
As one of the largest watershed organizations in Colorado, Roaring Fork Conservancy serves residents and visitors throughout the Roaring Fork Valley through school and community-based Watershed Education programs and Watershed Science and Policy Projects including regional watershed planning, water resource policy initiatives, stream management, and restoration.
