Start Your Discovery Here

There is no other region quite like the Colorado Plateau. And there’s no better place to learn about it than right here at the Canyon Country Discovery Center. Our place-based learning experiences provide a fun, creative way for students and teachers to learn about:  

 Local Culture  Natural History
 People and Places  Landscapes
 Land Use and Energy  Astronomy
 Water and Climate

Hands-on indoor and outdoor education programs facilitated by our staff.


We can bring the learning right to your school in our Discovery 2 Go van.
