Animals Around the Rock

Join Douglas Land Conservancy and the Town as we dive into the characteristics that define our local wildlife, including raptors, reptiles, bats, insects and other species.

Local wildlife experts, organizations and wildlife rehabilitators, such as Nature's Educators and Denver Audubon, will be featured at these programs. Discover the various types of animals that live locally and all over the world. Find out what they eat, how they hunt, where they live and how they benefit the local ecosystems.
