THORNE ECOLOGICAL INSTITUTE Overview
Programs: Thorne Natural Science School (TNSS) is celebrating 50 years and is our flagship program. Students ages 3-15 explore natural areas through 5 day field courses. This program operates in Boulder and Littleton. Project BEAR (Building Environmental Awareness and Respect) is Thorne's outreach program serving elementary schools in 7 school districts along the Front Range. Students enjoy three classroom visits by Thorne's BEAR instructors and culminate their experience by writing an ebook - a student-authored non-fiction text using photographs from their programs. The Sombrero Marsh Environmental Education Center was created in 1999, through a Partnership with the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks Department (OSMP) and the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). Through this Partnership, Thorne provides teacher training workshops and environmental education classes on Wetland Ecology for over 1,000 BVSD students. The Waterton Canyon Environmental Education Center was created in 1995 through a Partnership with Denver Water. Through this Partnership, Thorne provides field courses for over 500 Denver, Douglas, Littleton and Jefferson County students.
