Contact the Colorado Geographic Alliance at

For thirty years, the Colorado Geographic Alliance has provided professional development for elementary and secondary teachers, supported policy efforts at state and district levels, and offered public engagement opportunities including giant traveling maps, talks with geographers, and activities during Geography Awareness Week as part of the Network of Alliances for Geographic Education.  With the completion of National Geographic's funding for the Colorado Geographic Alliance, there will be no dedicated resources to support communication and programs in the future. In order to avoid losing connections that have been made across the state, please share what is most important to you about a geography education community by completing a short survey with your ideas [].
