The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is one of the largest urban refuges in the country. This 15,000-acre Refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
More than 330 species of wildlife, including bald eagles, bison, deer, coyotes, burrowing owls, and prairie dogs, call the Refuge home. It also provides important feeding and resting grounds for resident and migratory birds.
Experience the "wild" and make a reservation for free, guided wildlife viewing tours or nature programs. Take a self-guided tour of the Refuge on our Wildlife Drive, hike one of the many trails, or enjoy seasonal catch-andrelease fishing. There is no entrance fee, and most of our programs are free!
Stop in and see the Refuge’s "green" Visitor Center with interactive exhibits and a unique gift shop. Explore a colorful discovery room full of nature activities for all ages.
