Lessons from the Roaring Fork Conservancy
Aspen, CO Colorado
Sarah Johnson, the education coordinator for the Basalt-based Roaring Fork Conservancy, sent The Aspen Times a number of photos of local students participating in the organization’s educational programs.
She also sent us this description of the conservancy’s programs:
Since 1997, Roaring Fork Conservancy has taught over 40,000 local students and adults about rivers and water in the Roar ing Fork Valley. With our mission of “inspiring people to explore, value, and protect the Roaring Fork Watershed,” these programs help students connect to our valley’s most important natural resource ” water.
Roaring Fork Conservancy educators have worked with many classes in the valley to provide a unique, hands-on experience that complemented their classroom curriculum. Many of the programs are field-based and all connect students directly to water in our valley. Educators teach students about the ecological (biological, chemical, physical), cultural, and community significance of local rivers and water using relevant, hands-on, place based, interactive learning.
