Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) is partnering with the Town of Erie, Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation, City of Brighton Parks and Rec, Chimney Rock National Monument, Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Forest Service to encourage outdoor exploration and learning using a familiar tool almost everyone has in their back pocket, their smartphone.

The Colorado Explorer Campaign uses Agents of Discovery®, an educational technology platform that enables educators to create their own augmented reality games - think Pokemon Go for parks and education. Download the app for free from the App and Play stores and download the missions you’re interested in. Missions are free to play and, once downloaded, do not require Wi-Fi or a data connection.  

The Colorado Explorer Campaign will run from May 31 - July 14, 2024. For more information, visit Agents of Discovery’s Colorado Explorer website​.
