Welcome 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 live 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 and 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.
