about Bluff Lake Nature Center:
Bluff Lake Nature Center works to preserve one of Colorado's native ecosystems. The unique site is managed as a valuable outdoor classroom, providing programs to the public and making the park available free of charge everyday to people who enjoy nature and wildlife. Over 4,000 school children receive award winning science education programs every year at this extraordinary outdoor classroom.
The natural, secluded, quiet, and wildlife-rich environment offers a unique experience to visitors and school groups. It is an island with wetland, woodland, stream, and prairie surrounded by a dense urban environment. As such, its character is very fragile. Please practice good stewardship when you visit and help us preserve Bluff Lake Nature Center for this generation and the next.
The Nature Center hosts summer day "naturalists camps" for children ages 6-10.
