THE STORY:

 The  Mountain Park Environmental Center, located in beautiful Beulah Valley, is constructing a greenhouse to improve our award winning Earth Studies  Program. The new greenhouse will 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 - around 1300 10- and 11-year-olds.  Students will be able  to experience four full day sessions for the 2017-2018 academic year.   Our new climate/weather lessons introduce such topics as the  greenhouse effect, the carbon cycle, climate and weather, and carbon  foot prints. 

With the successful completion of a Quonset (hoop house)  style greenhouse, students will be able to take temperature readings inside and outside of the greenhouse and be able to compare real time  data that they took themselves!    

Although  our current primary focus for erecting a greenhouse is for education,  we hope to  expand its usage in the future to grow vegetables and herbs  for the Horseshoe Lodge, & Retreat Center, and potentially provide a  community garden in the future!  

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.  Please  help support this great cause and the improvement of climate and  weather awareness among future generations of Pueblo.  

We hope to have  the greenhouse completed and ready for use before the  start of our  2017/2018 Earth Studies program in late August.  Thank you  for taking  the time to learn about our greenhouse project and for supporting MPEC in providing  climate/weather education.
