Boulder Valley Inner City Outings is an all-volunteer outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides free nature outings to children from low-income families to enrich their lives and to help build a new and more diverse generation of environmental stewards. Boulder Valley ICO will launch an outdoor photography and art academy in 2016. We are looking for volunteers to accompany us on our outings to teach photography using small digital cameras suitable for backpacking.

Mission Statement

Boulder Valley Inner City Outings aims to enrich the lives of our participants and to instill in these children wonder and respect for nature and wilderness. We are a non-political entity, focused on sharing our love of the outdoors with children who would not have these experiences any other way.

Description

Boulder Valley Inner City Outings is an outreach program of the Sierra Club that takes children from low-income families in Boulder County on free nature outings and wilderness adventures. Our outings include everthing from snowshoeing to multi-day backpacking.

We do not preach environmentalism to participants. Instead, we take children to amazing places at let nature to the talking.

We also run a free youth leadership for program participants that teaches the basics of outdoor leadership, advanced outdoor skills, some earth and life science, critical thinking skills, and the basics of environmental stewardship.

We also run a water sampling and fly fishing program in partnership with the City of Boulder, Boulder Flycasters, and Water Sentinels (the Sierra Club's national water sampling and stewardship program).
