“It’s an organization that raises wildlife awareness in kids/students. It’s lots of fun and they are helpful with helping us get ready for college. It’s AMAZING.”

Learning Environmental Activities for Families

Learning Environmental Activities for Families (LEAF) brings families into ELK's community of learning. By participating in LEAF activities, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and extended family learn about Colorado's natural resources and give back to the community through stewardship projects.

LEAF strengthens the support system for youth to succeed by providing a multi-generational mentoring system. Participants take part in healthy outdoor activities and establish strong family bonds while learning about science and community stewardship.

Activities include camping, an educational sleepover at the Denver Aquarium or Denver Zoo, hunting, and fishing. Aside from the LEAF program, parents are welcome to join ELK on all activities.

To participate, please e-mail Kim at kweiss@elkkids.org or call 303-291-7554.
