About the Program

The Cuchara Valley Recreation Program was created to get the kids out of their house socializing, hiking and learning about nature, and most importantly having fun. Over the years it has developed to encompass everyone, the young and the old. We offer hikes, weekly bingo, and an annual fun run. In the past five years we have also added educational opportunities with our Chautauqua program.
