Yampatika’s mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through education.
Our main goal, broadly defined, is to develop environmental learning opportunities that serve the children and adults of Northwest Colorado.
Established in 1992 as the “Yampatika Outdoor Awareness Association,” Yampatika continues to be the only non-profit organization that offers a continuum of educational services to children and adults ranging in age from pre-K to senior citizens in Routt, Moffat and Jackson Counties.
Yampatika offers programs year-round for both youth and adults.
Our programs include school-based programs, camps, seasonal walks and tours for adults and programs at our Environmental Learning Center at Legacy Ranch in Steamboat Springs. We are the only organization in the Yampa Valley focused on common sense environmental stewardship for individuals of all ages.
