Dedicated Mission Statement
To awaken a sense of wonder and inspire environmental stewardship and citizenship by educating K-12 students through outdoor experiences and inquiry learning.
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.
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.
