And Then There Was Camp Again


On Monday I got the chance to collaborate with two other LHIPsters, Tangy of Public Affairs and Alejandro of Rocky Mountain National Park. We joined forces to educate Latinos and Native American Indian youth on what beauties the national parks have to offer. I talked about geology, Tangy facilitated along with teaching them about some animals, and Alejandro went into detail about predator and prey and their effect on the food chain. It was a wonderful experience! The youth were very interested in what we had to teach them and, overall, enjoyed it.

Summer is Going by too Fast


One more blog down, and one more to go. This week has been another great week with the camp kids. We had a small group of bright students come down from Cresson Elementary in the town of Cripple Creek. Cripple Creek is a small town about 30 minutes south of the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (FLFO), and since they were closer we had more time for activities.

The Final Bow?


This is my last blog, and before I talk about my week I just want to say this has been an amazing adventure! I can’t thank enough all the wonderful people who helped me get here. Ten out of ten; I would definitely recommend.

Kevin Jauregui

I was born in the sunny, beach town of Santa Monica, California, and was raised predominately in West Los Angeles. Living in a large town my whole life, I am really excited to transition to a small town. At first, I was terrified to find out the population of Florissant is about 100 people; I’m pretty sure there are more than 100 residents on my block alone back in West LA. Then I found housing in a slightly larger town a hop, skip away in Woodland Park, where the population is larger, but still it is not like my hometown of LA. Through LHIP, Kevin implemented a Geology/Paleontology Summer Camp geared for children going into 4th - 6th grade.
