Fun, Hands-on Learning Since 1954
Thorne Nature Experience, formerly Thorne Ecological Institute, was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1954 by Dr. Oakleigh Thorne, II and is currently celebrating 60 years of connecting youth to nature through joyful, hands-on, place-based environmental education experiences. During the past six decades, Thorne has connected more than 200,000 children, teens, and adults to nature and become a nationally recognized leader in the field of environmental education. Today, Thorne’s Summer Camp, In-School Program, and Field Trips reach more than 12,000 Boulder County and Front Range youth each year.

Although we will NOT have Open Hours today at Sombrero Marsh, they will resume next week on Monday and Tuesday from 1-5pm. Every Monday and Tuesday, parents and caretakers can bring their kids for a hands-on self guided exploration. Come in, chat with an educator, grab an exploration backpack, and head out to the marsh to identify grasses, listen to songbirds, and catch creepy-crawlies in a net. We have lots of exciting exhibits too! For more information about visiting Sombrero Marsh, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303.499.3647.
