Your Outdoor Classroom at the Monument
Colorado National Monument provides curriculum-based education in a variety of ways. Check out our offerings below, and contact us for more information or to schedule a field trip. Select Field Trip Programs if you're an educator interested in a traditional ranger-led school field trip. Our school program calendar fills up quickly, so plan ahead for the fall semester or consider scheduling a virtual program!
You might qualify for an Academic Fee Waiver, so please fill out our form (at least Sections 1 and 5) and email it to COLM_Education_Fee_Waivers@nps.gov, preferably four to six weeks prior to your field trip to allow time for processing the number of requests we receive.
