Visiting Plains Conservation Center
Take a trip back in time to Colorado’s high plains and pioneer life in the mid-1800’s. The Plains Conservation Center is a true-to-life homestead stretching across 8,894 acres of dedicated open space. Historic ranch houses, a schoolhouse, blacksmith shop and barn plus an heirloom garden and chicken coop and a Cheyenne camp with tipis bring the experience to life. The Learning Center and library are open to schools and groups. Special seasonal events are offered year-round to the public.
*Please note the Plains Conservation Center will be closed to the public on November 28th and 29th to observe the Thanksgiving holiday. We will resume normal business hours on Saturday, November 30th.
