Yampatika is a great resource if you are visiting or living in the Yampa Valley and want to learn more about the amazing natural environment here. Experienced naturalists lead snowshoe and hiking tours and bird walks. Tours run weekly throughout the spring and summer months, and you can also schedule private tours. They offer wonderful programs for kids at the historic Legacy Ranch, just south of Steamboat. Check their Website for information about summer camps. My son attended a week-long camp focused on the sun last year and made chocolate chip cookies in a solar oven :). Associated fees or donations support excellent programs provided by this nonprofit organization.
