Colorado Parks and Wildlife has partnered with Agents of Discovery, an educational mobile gaming platform, to create augmented reality trail missions at 13 state parks. This spring, with social distancing requirements still keeping many families in small units as they venture outdoors, it’s a great time to download the app on your smartphone and try out one of the new missions.
The missions, which task users with accomplishing educational and fun outdoor activities at state parks, can be accessed by smartphone users by downloading the Agents of Discovery app from the App and Play stores. Missions are FREE to play and, once downloaded, do not require Wi-Fi or a data connection.
Some examples at CPW state parks include:
- A Prairie Nature Trail mission at Jackson Lake State Park
- Learn about young wildlife with Cheyenne Mountain State Park’s Spring Babies mission
- Become a Junior Ranger at Steamboat Lake or St. Vrain state parks
- Learn about the night sky at Eleven Mile State Park
- Test your water knowledge at Ridgway and Mancos state parks
- Go on a scavenger hunt at Lake Pueblo State Park
- Discover there’s more than just dogs in Chatfield State Park’s Dog Off-Leash Area
- Staunton State Park even has a mission you can try at home!
Get started by downloading the Agents of Discovery app and visiting one of the state parks below.
