  1. Hi EE and Youth Program Providers,

    Please join us for Project Outdoors' first Program Providers' Retreat taking place on Wednesday, December 7 from 10am-3pm at the Gardens on Spring Creek (2145 Centre Ave, Fort Collins, 80526).

    As you may be aware, a Coalition of local partners along with a local youth advisory council are working here in Larimer County to improve opportunities for youth and families in northwest Fort Collins to experience nature and the outdoors. This planning effort is being funded by a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Inspire Initiative planning grant (to learn more about the Inspire Initiative, watch the video at this link Our initiative, Project Outdoors: Plug into Nature in Northwest Fort Collins, is focused on improving places, improving program offerings, and advancing career/job pathways for youth and families within northwest Fort Collins. In July 2017, Project Outdoors will be eligible to apply for a GOCO grant award up to $5 million for implementing ideas and strategies that come out of this planning and community engagement effort.

    Please join us at our first Program Providers' Retreat to learn about the barriers and needs of this community in regards to spending time outdoors. We will look at previously identified gaps in environmental and outdoor programs in the area and begin to identify strategies to overcome these barriers, meet the needs of the community, and fill programming gaps.

    We will provide lunch and data. We need you to bring your thinking caps!

    Please RSVP if you plan to attend at

    And, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or for more information.
