The mission of Beaver Ponds Environmental Education Center is to provide environmental education that gives individuals of all ages the tools and knowledge to become better stewards of the earth.
Join us for some outdoor family fun during our final open house of the year on December 10th, 11am-3pm. FREE guided tours in December will focus on winter ecology and how animals adapt to winter environment with a focus on beavers, moose and other animals. Watch for more details on our Facebook page.
Make an old-fashioned memory with your family cutting a holiday tree! Enjoy the camaraderie of finding, cutting, and hauling out a tree for your home. Beaver Ponds regularly thins trees as part of our forest management program. We'll lead you out to the tree thinning area and you may select your tree. A donation of $25.00 or more is requested for each tree. Bring your skis, snowshoes, or winter boots (depending on snow levels).
Happy Holiday Alpaca cards will also be available for sale along with winter caps and alpaca yarn. All sales benefit Beaver Ponds EEC.
You can always make an appointment to visit. Beaver Ponds is located on 70-acres at an elevation of 10,200 feet at Sacramento Creek Ranch near Fairplay, Colorado.
