Free Ranger Programs

Your visit can be more enjoyable when you better understand the environment around you. Ranger programs are offered primarily in warmer months, and occasionally during other times of the year as staffing permits. Schedules are generally posted each Friday for the following week's programs. You may request a special program for a larger group by calling the Visitor Center at 719-378-6395, or send an email.

Programs will resume in mid-March for the 2020 season, and will be offered intermittently on weekends until the main summer season. Evening programs will be offered on Saturday evenings beginning May 9, then Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings beginning May 22.
