The Keystone Science School, in partnership with Colorado River District, Aurora Water and Denver Water, will be hosting a standards-based, educational, three-day water program known as H2O Outdoors. Open to all Colorado high school students, H2O Outdoors will take place Oct. 13-15. The aim of the program is to provide students with insight into the world of Colorado’s water supply, laws and quality through hands-on experience in watershed observation. At the close of the program, students will present their findings during a “town hall” formatted dialogue. Meals and dorm-style housing are provided to all students and chaperones come from the Keystone Science School. Colorado students can enjoy this experience for only $25. Registration forms and fees are due by Sept. 14. For more info about H2O Outdoors or to register, contact Amanda Seidler at (970) 468-2098 or visit
