FREE December Field Trip: Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge

  • What: For December’s field trip, we are heading to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge! Once there we will be feeding endangered Black Footed Ferrets, working together to build a bison out of bison skeleton, and go on a wildlife drive to check out the bison herd. Science credit will be available for participants.
  • Who: All students encouraged to come! We have a limited amount of space available per field trip, so field trips will be on a first come, first served basis in most circumstances. All students must RSVP through the link below to attend. If more students RSVP than field trip space allows, then academic standing will be considered. Those students who are on track in their courses will have precedence to participate over those students who are off track in their courses. Students also must be on time for the field trip or their spot may be given to another student.
  • When: Thursday, December 6th. Students will meet at Smedley at 9am to get on the bus shortly after. Students will arrive back at Smedley around 1:30pm.
  • Where: Meet at Smedley to get on the bus. We will then be heading to Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge (6550 Gateway Rd, Commerce City, CO 80022).

  • Required Permission Slip: See attached.  All students participating in any field trip throughout the year must complete and return the attached permission slip form. There is only one permission slip that covers all monthly free field trips. Permission slip must be returned to Kaci Sintek ( in the main office before getting on the bus.
