I planned this trip for a group of 5th grade homeschooling girl scouts working on an environment badge. The website and info was fantastic, so I called ahead to arrange a tour. Sadly, the process was very disappointing. While the guide was very nice, he was not prepared for homeschoolers or kids of that age. We toured only the visitor center and there was very little hands on activity.
Would not recommend this as a stand-alone field trip. Maybe include it on a stop to Golden, CO to do other things.
