Nature, history, education and conservation combine in one unique place at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Commerce City. The 15,000-acre refuge has prairie, wetland and woodland habitats.

One of the largest urban wildlife sanctuaries in the country, the refuge has catch-and-release fishing, 10 miles of trails, wildlife viewing and site tours. It’s home to over 330 species, including bison, black-footed ferrets, deer, coyotes, bald eagles and burrowing owls.

There’s no charge to visit the refuge, open daily from sunrise to sunset. It also offers no-cost programs, like birding and fishing clinics.
