The Nature and Raptor Center of Pueblo is a member-supported, non-profit organization. Our beautiful setting along the Arkansas River features a variety of facilities and picnic areas, where we also offer educational nature programs for all ages. Bike, walk, or blade along our paved riverside trails, cast your line on the scenic fishing deck, or visit our resident birds of prey at the Raptor Center (open from 11 AM to 4 PM, Tuesday through Sunday). For an up-close raptor encounter, come to one of our free bird of prey presentations at 11:30 AM every Saturday and Sunday!

Small area, but nice for a quick something to do. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Just across from the Nature center there is a cafe situated next to the Arkansas river for refreshments and a short hiking trail in the area.

Educational and fun. Be up close and personal with raptors, learn about their habits and know what to do if you encounter one.
