Discover Aurora's true nature. You can experience it today or any day of the year with a visit to an Aurora park, natural area or trail. We invite you to visit our award-winning nature centers, attend an engaging program or presentation, or learn about our meaningful Volunteer Steward program. We offer Community Programs for schools and Scout groups. You can also request a Naturalist come talk to your local club, homeowners or civic group about Aurora's natural resources or wildlife education by calling 303-326-8445.
Feeding Wildlife Hurts the Animals You Love!
Intentional and unintentional wildlife feeding harms animals in ways you may not perceive. Food does not equal love for a wild animal! Feeding wildlife can degrade habitat, water quality and quality of life for not only the animals being fed but also for citizens negatively affected by nuisance behavior caused by fed wildlife. You can do your part to end the problem!
We know you love wildlife, but feeding wildlife only hurts the animals you love.
