2014 was a great year for SPREE Excursions! We expanded capacity to take an additional 1,000 students on Excursions. In total, over 4,400 ECE – 5th grade students attended our hands-on field trips along the South Platte River. These students explored riverside trails, discovered native plants and animals, re-enacted Colorado history, panned for gold, rafted, and much more!
We also added two new official “SPREE Schools” this year for a total of 10! These schools commit to bringing all of their students on a SPREE Excursion every year. Throughout elementary school, these children develop a connection to the River and build the knowledge and skills to become environmentally responsible decision makers.
