Students will learn about the history of the Rocky Mountains and how the landscape was formed. Depending on the age of students and goals of the teacher, students can study rock and mineral identification, plate tectonics, or weathering and erosion. Throughout their exploration students will also gain an understanding about how earth science and geology play into the rich mining history which helped shape the Colorado economy.

Historical mining practices have left many Colorado streams with poor water quality.  Students will learn about water quality improvement strategies and collaboratively determine policy recommendations for covering the costs of river and stream restoration.
