Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge provides a unique experience for youth of all ages to learn about wildlife in their natural habitat throughout the year. Its close proximity to the Denver metro area makes it an ideal destination for hands-on outdoor learning.
Curriculum-based Field Trips
Take your students on a field trip to a National Wildlife Refuge to view and learn about the wildlife and habitat anytime of the year. Each field trip is grade specific and correlated to Colorado Model Content Standards.
Teacher-led field trips to the Refuge are typically self-guided. The Refuge requires a ratio of 1 adult to every 10 students. There are outdoor lunch facilities available for use. For availability and scheduling, contact the Urban Park
Ranger at 303-729-2252.
Depending on selected dates, rangers may be available to lead a refuge introduction. Due to the high demand of our free field trip visits and limited space, all educators and group leaders are required to schedule their group's trip in advance with the Urban Park Ranger. Scheduling is available the following time:
- Fall, Winter and Spring: Wednesday through Friday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, September through May
- Summer Camps and Groups: Wednesday through Friday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, June through August
