Dedicated Mission Statement
Our mission is to awaken a sense of wonder and inspire environmental stewardship and citizenship through education of students, families and local residents along the Colorado Northern Front Range.
Our Curriculum Coordinator works with each class to make the Field Experience unique to them. All activities will be an extension of what the students are learning in the classroom.
All activities at the PLC are hands-on and encourage students to participate and ask questions. We believe that experiencing learning instead of just reading about it can inspire a life long love of learning.
Welcome back to the PLC! Feel free to walk the trails and fish at the lake.
You'll see school groups have made their way back out for Field Experiences and we're so happy to have them back!
The buildings are open for summer hours: Monday through Thursday from 8:30am until 4:00pm. At this time, masks are still required when inside the PLC buildings.
Stay safe, happy and healthy and get outside!
The Poudre Learning Center is now apart of NOCO BEET (Northern Colorado Building Environmental Education Together)! NOCO BEET is a collaborative of Environmental Education organizations working together to further the impact and quality of environmental education in northern Colorado. You can find helpful learning resources on their website. For more information, visit NOCObeet.org
Each month, this collaborative sends out a newsletter geared towards providing environmental education opportunities to families and teachers in Northern Colorado.
District 6 Headlines
"Aesha was a huge part of our success all season long guiding the Bulldogs to a 25-4 record. As she had monster kills, great blocking (7 solo blocks in the state championship match), great leadership, humble attitude, and strong work ethic was amazing. She helped guide the Bulldogs to their first ever state title in school history. Aesha is a great example of what a student/athlete in our district should be like. Great job, Aesha!" - Jared Rudiger, University High School Head Volleyball Coach

Amy is so hardworking, always working on improving, no matter what class she is in.

And, look forward to his accomplishments in the upcoming basketball season." - Sean Scribbick, Greeley Central High School Athletic Director
