Welcome To High Plains Environmental Center

Restoring nature where we live, work, and play.

HPEC August 082Welcome to the High Plains, where the sun shines more than 300 days each year and the passing clouds release barely enough water to support life. Yet somehow, plants, animals, and people thrive and coexist here.

We invite you to experience our living laboratory at High Plains Environmental Center. Discover how to live in better harmony with the land. Explore the connection between sustainable living and ecological processes that foster personal and community well-being.

Visit the HPEC, walk our trails, and participate in fun, educational activities. Join us at workshops on water, energy conservation and efficient consumerism. Work and play with us as we conduct wildlife studies and environmental research. Discover your place in the High Plains community.


GoFundMe Solar Battery Campaign

Each year the High Plains Environmental Center sets up a live stream of Barn Owl activity on our property that attracts avian and raptor lovers across the globe. However, when we went to turn on the cameras this year we realized our batteries had stopped working! HPEC is now raising money to replace our solar panel batteries. Please donate and help us get this amazing, educational opportunity back up and running.
