Sense of Place

Acknowledging the intricacies of Colorado is critical if we are to build roots in this community and fully appreciate all that it takes to live in Colorado Springs. By fostering a deeper sense of our geography, we can build a more connected, conscious, and resilient community. Join the Office of Sustainability on all the Sense of Place trips to deepen your knowledge about the world you live in.

Upcoming Sense of Place Tours


Explore the complex system of reservoirs, pipelines, and pump stations that feed water to Colorado Springs from over the mountains. Visit the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs for a glimpse of how water is used for recreation, and visit local farms on the Lower Arkansas River to understand agricultural water issues. This three-day, two-night trip includes lodging and soaking at the Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, a hike around Hoosier Pass, and other interesting locations. We hope you are excited about the Water Tour! This is one of the most popular SOP trips that the OOS offers.
