The Plains Conservation Center is a non-profit organization. We have two sites: the Aurora site is open to the public Monday through Saturday; the West Bijou site consists of about 9,000 acres and is closed to the public except for special tours.
The Aurora site has a replica 1887 pioneer homestead that includes sod homes, a chicken coop, an heirloom garden, a one-room schoolhouse, and more. We have tipis in which we give historical Cheyenne programs. The prairie, all 1,100 acres of it, is perfect for a walk (or a wagon ride) to view wildlife and escape the bustle of the city. Our Front Range Building houses live reptiles and amphibians, displays, activities, and a wealth of information.
