Educational Partnership with Crow Canyon Archaeological Center
During the winter months, Open Sky partners with Crow Canyon Archaeological Center to offer students a unique experiential education opportunity. Our winter course area, located in southeastern Utah, is part of a landscape that has been utilized by humans for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. It is not unusual for students to find Ancestral Puebloan artifacts, such as pottery shards, a stone’s throw from the teepees in which they shelter. To enrich students’ understanding of the cultured history of the landscape on which they’re living, Crow Canyon educators meet students and guides in the field to facilitate hands-on learning activities. These activities are meant to strengthen students’ awareness, respect, and stewardship of both the land and culture of the native peoples who inhabited this place before us.
