More on the Environmental Pathway:

Thanks to a partnership between Fort Lewis College and the Southwest Colorado Education Collaborative, the Environmental Pathway is a free program designed for regional high school students who are interested in exploring climate issues, biodiversity in the region, and other environmental inquiries. If you’re passionate about learning, then the EP is your trail of discovery.

Connect with local leaders, college mentors, and high school students from across the region while exploring environmental college and career options!
