2018 Conservation Poster Contest!

The Rio Grande Watershed Conservation & Education Initiative has grown from a conservation poster contest and a handful of school visits and community outreach events to over 10,000 student visits a year, a variety of field trips for students and community members, a kids' conservation camp, grazing and farming workshops, serving as an education voice on many boards, committees and educational programs and a Project Wet, Project Learning Tree, and Food, Land and People and local curriculum provider.
Throughout all these changes, the mission has remained the same - to provide quality informative education about conservation and the use of natural resources to San Luis Valley farmers, ranchers, land owners, community members and students.
RGWCEI's partnership with local Valley agencies and farmers and ranchers means that we're all dedicated to providing that education and awareness to our children. With such dedication, there's a real chance that our next generations will be passionate, educated, and eager to be part of their environment.
