Have you ever wanted to travel across huge swaths of land, familiarizing yourself with the issues they face and meeting those who call it home? For over 3 years now, the State of the Rockies Project has been doing just that. 


State of the Rockies Expeditions, which feature student planned and led trips, have traversed countless miles of terrain across the Rocky Mountains, from just north of the Canadian border to the Colorado River delta in Mexico. These journeys engage not only the natural landscape, but the human one as well. Tracing geographical pathways across land and water, these treks have produced media that has been successful in engaging stakeholders, educating citizens, engaging the public, and sharing stories of these wild places we share and love. 

Whether you're interested in conservation, natural resource issues, rocky mountain stories, or even just beautiful places, we invite you to take a look around and enjoy our work.



State of the Rockies Expeditions are an outreach initiative of the Colorado College State of the Rockies Project. The Project, now in its twelfth year, seeks to increase public understanding of vital issues affecting the Rockies. In addition to the field expeditions, the Project facilitates student-faculty collaborative research into natural resource issues affecting the region, hosts speaker events, and produces written materials educating western citizens about the issues that affect us.

This effort would not be possible without the support of Colorado College.
