Rocky Mountain Conservancy is a non-profit organization partnering with the National Park Service in providing educational seminars, research, and stewardship for more than 75 years.

The RMConservancy Field Institute offers direct access to Rocky Mountain National Park and hands-on field opportunities with talented instructors.

Most seminars include lectures and field trips that enable participants to experience the Park as a classroom without walls.  When hiking is involved, because of the high altitude and variable weather, participants should be in good health and arrive equipped for sudden weather changes.

Seminars cover a wide range of topics including photography, art and writing, natural history, cultural history, and skill building.  Youth and family seminars are designed especially to appeal to the Park's young visitors with topics like treasure hunts, geo-caching adventure, art adventures, ghost stories, fly-fishing and stream ecology, and more.

Seminars run January - October, with the majority during June - September.  Seminars are reasonably priced.
