Colorado Canyons Association, based in Grand Junction, Colorado, has elected Dufford Waldeck associate Bruce Walters to the Association’s Board of Directors.
Colorado Canyons Association fosters community stewardship of western Colorado’s national conservation lands with a focus on Dominguez-Escalante, Gunnison Gorge, and
(NCAs). A non-partisan, non-profit organization, CCA encourages cooperation among all national conservation area users and interests.
Colorado Canyons Association offers programs getting kids outside, providing outdoor learning programs for thousands of local students, and giving educators the tools and resources needed to extend the classroom environment into these learning landscapes by offering diverse and meaningful standards-based outdoor education programs to students in Mesa, Delta, and Montrose counties. In 2019, CCA will take over 850 students on nearly 40 river trips through National Conservation Areas on the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers. Some of these trips will feature stops at CCA’s Catalpa Camp, a science and adventure camp on the Ruby Horsethief section of the Colorado River. In addition to its river programs, CCA will also take over 2,500 students into local conservations lands for hands-on learning.
CCA also provides interpretive programs for the community beyond our schools. Offering hikes, lectures, stories captured on film, and guided adventures for all ages, CCA’s interpretive programs focus on the scientific significance and cultural heritage of the NCAs.
