Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Established by Congress in 1992, Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge (RMANWR) is a work in progress. Over the years, the 1- to 2-mile-wide bu?er around the old chemical weapons plant provided a refuge for prairie animals and birds as the Denver metro area expanded. White-tailed deer, mule deer, eagles, prairie dogs, hawks, waterfowl, burrowing owls, and bison thrive on the refuge. Black-footed ferrets, the most endangered mammal species in North America, were reintroduced to this Refuge in October 2015.
This gem is close to Denver, yet so serene. Enjoy watching wildlife on your hike through shortgrass prairie, woodlands, and wetlands rich in farming and military history. RMANWR offers many different wildlife-viewing tours and nature programs."
