Waterton Canyon Kids & Educators Library

With the common goal of connecting kids to nature, a powerful partnership came together in the spring of 2009. Working with Denver Water and Thorne Nature Experience, the Rocky Mountain Land Library established a 3,000 volume Kids & Educators Library at Denver Water’s Kassler Center, southwest of metro Denver. With ample books to enliven any young naturalist’s field discoveries, this new branch location will provide insights and inspiration for Thorne Nature Experience’s students and staff, among many other groups.

Amazingly enough, our Waterton Canyon Library is located along the banks of the South Platte River, as is Buffalo Peaks Ranch, the Land Library’s future home in South Park. Both locations will tell a rich Watershed story, from our South Park headwaters to the metro Denver plains.

    • Thanks Sandra — we’re hoping to have regular hours sometime in 2018 (stay tuned!). At this time the Waterton Canyon Library is available for school groups, a summer camp, and various educational groups. We’re working to make the library much more accessible!
