Yampatika Winter Tours

Yampatika is the only non-profit organization in northwest Colorado that offers a continuum of environmental education programs to children and adults ranging in age from pre-K to seniors in Routt and Moffat Counties. Our mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through education. We recently expanded our service area by opening the Yampa Valley's first ever Environmental Learning Center at the City of Steamboat Springs' Legacy Ranch.


Private Nature Tours

Looking for a special tour catered to your interests? Have family or friends looking for a fun outing? Or maybe you are looking for a birthday party calling for something different? Private tours allow you to plan your time with a Yampatika Naturalist. We can offer:

  • An invigorating snowshoe or cross country ski to discover the world of winter for all levels and abilities, near the town center or even further on Rabbit Ears Pass. Tour options include:
    • Emerald Mountain
    • Uranium Mine
    • Spring Creek
    • Several options on Rabbit Ears Pass
  • A bird watching adventure, even in winter!
  • A young Naturalist program to stimulate kids' curiosity while giving parents some time to explore on their own.
  • Your own unique experience!

Our Naturalists are creative, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. We will work with you to plan a custom program that will suit your needs best.
