Thank You Letters

Canyon Country Outdoor Education (CCOE) conducts field trips with local school groups to Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument and other areas.

After these field trips, students often express their thanks with wonderful letters and artwork about their day. The photo gallery below contains a selection of these letters.
