Due to COVID-19, Woodbine Ecology Center maintains minimal operations and is closed to the general public or to unscheduled drop-ins. We are reviewing and evaluating current conditions to determine safe and optimal operations for 2022.
We cannot accommodate unscheduled drop-ins. If you would like to schedule a visit or tour, please contact us. Due to minimal staffing, there may be a delay in our response to you. We appreciate your understanding and support.
Woodbine is at 7,000 ft (2,150 meters), in a rural and mountainous area of Colorado and it will usually be cooler than in Denver. Please plan your visit accordingly. Any weather-related updates will be posted on our Weather page. Sturdy closed-toe shoes are a very good idea, (anticipate snow or mud in fall, winter and spring) a hat and sunscreen are a must in the summer. If you plan to be outside a lot bring a water bottle with you. We strongly advise against wearing anything perfumed or you may find yourself very attractive to the local bee and wasp population.
Woodbine's natural beauty can be a wonderful retreat from the urban environments that most of us inhabit. This natural beauty comes with a different set of potential hazards than the city, including water, backcountry, and wildlife issues. Make sure you are familiar with our protocols (a staff member will gladly orient you upon arrival). If you are bringing children with you they must ALWAYS be under your direct adult supervision.
