About the KSS Outdoor Education Program
Our elementary program enhances the K-5 science curriculum by incorporating hands-on activities, lessons focused on the Colorado region and outdoor exploration.
The middle school program provides an elective course option for grades 6-8. This course curriculum is designed to introduce students to their local ecosystems critically analyzing the role of humans in the local environment.
The high school program provides an elective course option for grades 9-12. In this course, students will focus on personal growth and cultivate leadership skills while learning about outdoor education themes.
This program will bring students on off-site Field Trips as part of the outdoor experience. All students must have a completed medical and liability form to participate in the KSS Outdoor Education Program with Park County School District

Meet the Instructor: Elizabeth Mays
Elizabeth’s journey in environmental education began earning Junior Ranger badges on road trips with her family across the west. Hailing originally from the prairie state, she left the tall grasses and great lakes of Illinois behind to study Biology at Colorado College. After dabbling in plant biology research, she pursued a career in environmental education. Elizabeth found a passion in teaching youth how to camp, canoe, and enjoy nature. Most recently she developed and led outdoor programming for all ages in Illinois. Elizabeth is excited to return to Colorado to create and teach curriculum for Keystone Science School as the Park County Outdoor Education Faculty!
