The Turquoise Trail (a.k.a. The TT) was started in 1934, and it's been a pride of the Gulch ever since. Back then, The Gulch was a pioneer in getting young women outdoors. Today, the Turquoise Trail still inspires women to challenge express themselves as young women. This 5 week long all-female Trek will enamor trekkers and take them through wilderness backpacking trips, local service projects, rock climbing and mountaineering, and explorations of cultural and scientific sites throughout the Southwest. This Trek will spend the majority of their time out on the open road traveling the four corners. However, we settle down for 10 days at our Base Camp to work of legacy projects. In the past, these projects have included adobe kiln and horno restoration, pottery and silver smithing in our Native Arts Workshop, organic farming, forest restoration, and Base Camp beatification projects. Like our original trip, the Prairie Trek, nearly every member of this group returns for a second summer; a testament to the power of these experiences.
Jun. 27th - Jul. 31st
The Cottonwood Gulch Prairie Trek began in 1926 when our founder, Hillis Howie, learned of plans to pave Route 66. He wanted to make sure that his students learned about the American West and Native cultures before it was too late. This 5 week, all male Trek will inspire and challenge young men through wilderness backpacking, local service projects, rock climbing, mountaineering, canyoneering, and exploration of cultural and scientific sites around the Four Corners. Prairie Trekkers spend a large part of their Trek traveling from site to site, bound only by the road and their destination. The remaining time will be spend at our Base Camp property located in the Zuni Mountains. Here Trekkers will work on their personal legacy projects that may include forest restoration projects, organic farming projects, or special carpentry additions to Base Camp. Prairie Trekkers have the highest rate of return and represent a 90 year legacy here at The Gulch.

This Trek will spend much of their 44 days exploring sites like a Colorado 14er, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, The Great Sand Dunes, and many other world class destinations. MDT Trekkers will develop leadership skills through personal projects, planning expeditions, demonstrating expedition mentality, and communal living. Most importantly, Trekkers will learn self-reliance, compassion for their peers, and how to overcome personal challenges.

Make it a Shark Week you won't forget!
Shark-tivities at the Shark Lab:
There are over 400 different species of sharks, each one with a very different diet ranging from plankton to whales. Using real shark jaws, join our naturalists to discover which sharks eat what.
Who laid that Egg:
There's nothing "primitive" about sharks. Come see real shark eggs laid by our own swell sharks and see how sharks have survived five extinctions to become top survivors.
Did you know that sharks are older than dinosaurs? Learn about prehistoric sharks during this special presentation.
Find out what it takes to "wrangle" a shark for research. By researching sharks in the wild, we may be able to help protect sharks and keep our marine ecosystems in balance.
