You may be surprised to discover that just 8 miles northeast of Denver, lies an over 15,000 acre area of land filled with natural habitats for over 330 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. What you may find even more interesting is the transformation that this beautiful refuge for wild animals has undergone through the years.
