Students, teachers and parents are escorted through and educated about the Boulder County Recycling Center's sorting operations and ecological features during this tour. A short video is shown explaining the complex system of collection, sorting, and contaminant removal done by the machines and employees of the recycling center. Exhibits on landfills, natural resources, eco-building features, backyard composting, and proper recycling guidelines are visited, as well as a safe, elevated viewing of the machines and people at work right!
Several schools from throughout the county compete to see which can reduce their lunch trash the most over a one-week period. Eco-Cycle staff weighs each school’s trash once before and twice during the contest week to determine the amount of trash reduced. Student sponsor groups are given posters to color and hang in the hallways, and PA system announcements to practice and deliver. Kick-off assemblies are held for each grade level at each school to motivate and inform the students. A parent letter, provided by Eco-Cycle, is also sent home to involve parents in the project.
The perfect experience to engage young minds, hearts and bodies. Immerse your students into the natural world, learn key science concepts and build a strong classroom community. Bring your 5th grade class, middle school choir or any group of your choice. Experiential Learning Associates will facilitate engaging science enrichment activities like mountain ecology and creek studies while exploring the montane ecosystem. Community building, challenge hike to the Hidden Room, a night hike, campfire and even a few events on the challenge course if desired will be included in this full and fun 2 day one night experience! College interns and new to the field outdoor educators assist with program activities while supporting their training in education and learning how to positively engage students. Parent chaperones are welcome to join in and assist in the cabins at night. The food is scrumptious and Highlands will take care of every special dietary need, including complete vegan and gluten free diets.
