The Estes Park Environmental Center and the GO3 Foundation will co-host the eighth Best of Both Worlds (BoBW) conference in Estes Park, Colorado in September 2016.

The Estes Park Environmental Center hosted a one-day workshop on September 30, 2015 to provide a forum for local governments to collaborate on regional elk and habitat management in Northern Colorado.
Estes Park Environmental Center sponsored a Student Art Celebration honoring the 100th anniversary of Rocky Mountain National Park. Students statewide in grades K – 12 participated in this event. Artwork was entered in the categories of visual arts, photography, fiber arts, and music. Students created their artwork in response to the theme: “Rocky Mountain National Park – 100 years of lessons from the ecosystems.”
The works of 85 student artists, who placed at the state level, were displayed for one week at the Fall River Visitor Center of RMNP. A celebration was held for the students, their families, and the public, and was attended by over 200 people. Artist Jim Disney spoke about his work as an artist in the park. All entries were honored with a certificate and a ribbon. The students, whose works placed first, second, or third in each category, received a one year pass to RMNP and a centennial poster signed by Mr. Disney.
Estes Park Environmental Center is looking forward to sponsoring the second Student Art Celebration which will honor the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.
This pilot program partnered with Westview Middle School (St. Vrain Valley Schools),
Rocky Mountain National Park and the Estes Park Environmental Center to help train “Citizen Scientists”
in field-research techniques necessary to monitor the ecological health of the Endovalley/Fall River drainage in Rocky Mountain National Park. This two-week course featured multiple days in the Park, conducting field research focused on two animals—Wilson’s Warbler and puma—and one plant community, willow.
