Our education efforts coordinate with local school systems, teachers, parents and students to increase understanding and appreciation of local history and culture, and how it relates to the long term sustainability of the region. We hope these efforts engage young people in leadership development and creating a deep understanding of history, community functions and needs.

Local history, local arts and local culture are not emphasized through any formal curriculum standards, and students often graduate without a full understanding or appreciation of the cultural significance that is unique to the San Luis Valley. Through curriculum, field trips and scholarship opportunities we hope help local youth not only understand their past and define their self-identify within the regions broader cultural context, but also to enrich their education by exploring ways in which they may personally contribute to the conservation of their communities and unique cultural traditions.
