Daniel teaching students at Navajo Lake State Park


We partner with a number of different organizations for on- and off-site programs, events, land usage, research, and other collaborations.

We are a member of the Sandia Mountain Bear Collaborative and have assisted with collecting bear hair and scat for scientific research in the Sandia mountains.

Sponsors & Donors

Our sponsors help us provide quality programming to students around New Mexico by providing grants and other funding for bus transportation, teaching materials, doing projects for us, and more. We are ever-grateful for their support; we couldn't do all we do without them. Thank you to all that you've given us and continue to do!

Current Sponsors and Supporters:

 New Mexico State Parks offers the Kids 'n Parks transportation grant to cover bus costs for schools to meet us at state parks to present our Traveling Ecology Field Program. A separate State Parks grant funds our travel and program costs to be able to teach these programs
