Welcome to the Environmental Learning Center

Our mission at the Colorado State University Environmental Learning Center is to inspire and educate people to connect with and become stewards of our natural world.

We do this by –

  • Facilitating high quality, positive, educational experiences in and about the environment.
  • Educating and mentoring future leaders in the fields of environmental education and communication.
  • Bringing the knowledge, skills, and talent within the college to the outside community.
