Ensuring a next generation of river stewards
Are student field trips a thing of the past? With skyrocketing bus costs and the expectation that educators pack as much standards-related content into the school day as possible, many schools are viewing field trips as unattainable. However, nothing replaces the social and educational perspectives gained through firsthand experiences.
The Poudre Heritage Alliance (PHA) provides grant funds to K-12 school teachers in Larimer and Weld County to hire buses and pay entry fees to bring their students on field trips to the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area (CALA).
Our mission is simple – to help youth understand and value the Poudre River and their water heritage, ensuring a next generation of river stewards.
