Thorne Nature Experience, formerly Thorne Ecological Institute, was founded in Boulder, Colorado in 1954 by Dr. Oakleigh Thorne, II and is currently celebrating 59 years of connecting youth to nature through joyful, hands-on, place-based environmental education experiences. During the past five 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 7,000 Boulder County and Front Range youth each year.
With the end of the school year coming up, we know you're looking for great family nature activities and we have just the thing! Thorne's Sombrero Marsh EE Center is now open to the public on Mondays and Tuesdays from 1PM-5PM. Come by, pick up an exploration backpack, and start your investigations!
