Two campuses, one raptor rehabilitation center… and plenty of opportunities for you, your family, and friends to make memories that will last a lifetime! The Nature & Wildlife Discovery Center’s main purpose is to connect kids and the community with nature, through our various events, camps, and educational programs, at each of our locations. We offer these things at a low-cost and provide scholarships to send kids to summer camp.
Our Mountain Park Campus, located in Beulah, CO, consists of 611 acres of solitude, a lodge, a pavilion, classrooms, an amphitheater, hiking trails, and a low ropes challenge course. This campus is ideal for group retreats, weddings, family reunions, weekend getaways, and overnight camping for school groups, or scout troops.
The River Campus is located in Pueblo, CO on the Arkansas River. Here, we also host weddings,reunions, parties, baby showers, community events and educational programs. This location is an oasis, in the city of Pueblo, where one can hike, bike, walk their pets, and cookout.
Our Raptor Center is where we rehabilitate birds of prey, so they can be released back into the wild. We have sixteen resident raptors and rehabilitate about 200 per year. During the summer we host a raptor camp for kids entering 4th-6th grades, while every Saturday & Sunday, free raptor presentations are given at 11: 30 a.m.
We offer raptor presentations for birthday parties and other special events. Give us a call at (719) 549-2414, 2-3 weeks prior to your event, for more information.
So, for your next event book with us, and sleep well at night knowing your booked event is supporting the kids, community and raptor rehabilitation programs that we offer.
