Mission Statement

Four Corners School of Outdoor Education creates lifelong learning experiences about the Colorado Plateau for people of all ages and backgrounds through education, service, adventure, and conservation programs.

Description

The Four Corners School was founded in 1984. Our vision is to build a diverse community of people who are committed to conserving the natural and cultural resources of the Colorado Plateau, through hands-on engagement in placed-based programs. The Four Corners School of Outdoor Education has just built a state-of-the-art campus to serve and inspire diverse local, regional, national and international visitors, students, educators, and researchers. Located at 7,000 feet in the heart of the Colorado Plateau, the Canyon Country Discovery Center, our new 48-acre campus, integrates existing and new field and campus-based programs in a unique learning center. The Discovery Center is ahybrid science and nature facility, with 45 indoor and outdoor learning stations. Developed for culturally diverse audiences; children and adults explore and discover the natural history and landscapes, people and places, land use and energy, astronomy, and water and climate ofthe Colorado Plateau. The site was creatively engineered as a place-based facility with an informal science center, riparian area, visual art installations, nature play-scape, classroom, night sky observatory, research lab, conference area, cultural pavilions, and staff offices. Our campus will promote economic development in San Juan County by using local business services and attractions and encourage visitors to get outdoors and experience the natural world of the Colorado Plateau.
