FLC students working on a conservation project

Now more than ever, our world needs us to connect and take action so future generations come into a place of abundance and opportunity. From our location in Southwest Colorado, we have unique opportunities to make a positive impact on our environment through conservation, restoration, food production, and the ways we live.

You will spend four days before the start of Orientation learning by doing, immersing yourself in the kind of work that makes a difference:

  • Learn how to grow and harvest food grown in sustainable ways
  • Take part in public lands stewardship projects that benefit important ecosystems
  • Develop your leadership skills so you can effectively make positive change in the world
  • Sample the variety of environmental, social, and sustainability experiences and programs that Fort Lewis College has to offer

And by night, you’ll sleep in the moon-shadow of our beautiful mountains, prepare and eat delicious meals together, and meet new friends who care about our world the same way you do.
