The Bluff Lake environmental education programs were developed to benefit urban students in kindergarten through fourth grade. The education programs emphasize a variety of environmental topics including wildlife habitats, food webs, plant communities, wetland ecology, non-point source pollution, land-use history and environmental stewardship.
Guided programs are available throughout the year. Programs are led by environmental educators and volunteer nature guides. The current program offerings include:
In all of the programs, students learn through a variety of activities including nature walks, scavenger hunts, animal tracking, and environmental games. Teachers participating in these programs receive a Bluff Lake Explorers program guide that includes pre- and post-trip activities. Activities are correlated to the Colorado state standards for science education. Funding is available to help with transportation costs.
