All On-Site Education Programs Currently Suspended

Larimer County Department of Natural Resources has currently suspended all education programs to abide by the safer-at-home order. Please enjoy nature close to home with some of our other education resourcesFor guidance on how to stay safe and healthy while visiting our parks, open spaces, and trails, view these tips and if you do go out to an open space please carefully step off trail do not walk off trail Natural Resources is focused on ensuring employees, their families, volunteers, and visitors are safe. As this evolving situation unfolds, we will be monitoring and adjusting our response to ensure the continued safety of our community.

We offer naturalist led programs and field trips for schools and community groups. Potential topics include: geology, ecology, cultural history, local conservation and more. We can  work with your group to design a program that meets your specific objectives.

All PreK-12 education groups visiting Larimer County's parks or open spaces need to fill out a program request form through the Offero system. This helps Larimer County staff know there is an education group onsite and to ensure that multiple large groups are not scheduled at the same site on the same day. If you are planning an education program for your pre K-12 school group or recognized community organization, no fees apply. Request a Education Program Date

For higher education programs or if your group would like to visit on a weekend day and you are not requesting a naturalist guide, you will need to fill out a Special Event Application instead. The application fee is waived for educational groups.

Limited funding for school bus transportation is available for Title I schools. Please contact Angela Borland at if you would like to receive information on aid to cover the cost of fuel and labor for your field trip.
