PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Immerse yourself for three days in the wild and secluded beauty of the Gunnison River Canyon as you float westward from near Delta Colorado, accompanied by a teacher-trainer and naturalist from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

Explore the interactions that occur every day in nature. See how humans continuously affect these interactions. Use your experience to:

  • Connect your students to their environment in a way that creates an "essential nature literacy" that promotes both cognitive development and responsible citizenship. 
  • Gain important introductory background knowledge about topics in your science and social studies curricula including: resource management, ecology, geology, western history and astronomy.
