Woodbine Ecology Center is only open to the public during scheduled community events or by prior arrangement. We cannot accomodate unscheduled drop-ins. If you are part of a group and would like to schedule a visit or tour, please contact us or call 303.380.7984. Join our mailing list to hear about our upcoming programs and events.
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 at 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.
Woodbine Ecology Center is located at 2584 North State Highway 67, 6 1/2 miles west of Sedalia. If you are coming from Denver or Castle Rock, take US Hwy 85 (Santa Fe in Denver) to Sedalia and turn west onto CO Hwy 67 towards Deckers.

If you are driving you may park in the parking lot immediately south of the office building or across the street in the parking lot south of The Shooting Shop (but not in front of them). There is also limited on street parking.
