Where You'll Be:
Located in the Stapleton area of Denver, the Bluff Lake Nature Center is a 123-acre wildlife refuge that allows people of all ages the chance to connect with nature without leaving the city. As the city's largest open space, Bluff Lake Nature Center engages thousands of school groups in environmental education and is home to beavers, bats, turtles, and hundreds of other bird, mammal, insect, and plant species.
What You'll Do:
Celebrate Earth Day at Bluff Lake Nature Center's Family Nature Adventure Day! No registration is required; just show up Saturday morning with the family to enjoy outdoorsy activities, crafts, scavenger hunts, and a VOC-led effort to remove invasive plants. This is a great way to explore nature in the heart of the city and introduce the children in your life to the joys of the outdoors and volunteering.
