Become a Partner

With over 50 schools statewide, we work with partners around the state to connect students to the outdoors. SOLE encompasses a variety of environmental education topics including nature, geology, wildlife, history, and recreation.

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies offers field trips and in-class programs for 4th grade SOLE students. Here, they are educating young learners at one of our Denver area Family Nature Nights.

We have schools in all regions of the state and have several opportunities to partner:

  • Field trips to your site- Do you offer programming for 4th grade students?

  • In-class programs- Do you offer any in-school programming for 4th grade students?

We want to incorporate the wonderful work you are already doing. The level of commitment is up to you.
