The Mountain Park Environmental Center, located in beautiful Beulah Valley, is constructing a greenhouse to improve our award winning Earth Studies Program and provide an experiential component to better implement our recently updated curriculum to now include climate/weather studies. The Earth Studies program provides a hands on, boots on the ground experience for all 5th grade students who attend Pueblo School District #60 schools. Our new climate/weather curriculum provides in depth education including such topics as the greenhouse effect, the carbon cycle, climate and weather, atmospheric conditions and carbon foot prints. With the successful completion of a Quonset(hoop house) style greenhouse, students will be able to take temperature and relative humidity readings inside and outside of the greenhouse and be able to compare real time data that they took themselves! By supporting MPEC in this endeavor, you will be contributing to the cost of the building materials of the greenhouse and the purchase of weather measuring instruments. Help support this great cause and the improvement of climate and weather awareness among future generations of Pueblo.
