Standley Lake has partnered with Nature's Educators to bring you a series of FREE programs featuring live animals. These classes are held at the Standley Lake amphitheater and are weather dependent.
This program features our non-avian ambassadors like snakes, tortoise, scorpians, spiders, lizards and hissing cockroaches . Students will learn about the physical differences and how these creatures behave. The species at hand will represent different habitats, diets, physical appearances, sounds, defense methods, and more. Our "Getting Wild" program helps to dispel the idea that nature is scary and that all creepy-crawly creatures are dangerous. Every animal has its importance in the ecosystem!
For all ages. FREE CLASS! Class is limited to 50 spaces.

Standley Lake Regional Park
Standley Lake Regional Park is a 3,000- acre park located in unincorporated Jefferson County. The main entrance is located at 100th Avenue and Simms Street. The water rights for Standley Lake Reservoir are owned by FRICO (Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company) and the surface recreation rights have been leased to the City of Westminster for use as a recreation area since 1970. There is an Intergovernment Agreement (IGA), which governs the water use and is managed by the Standley Lake Operations Committee (SLOC). The members of the SLOC committee are comprised of officials from the City of Westminster, the City of Northglenn, the City of Thornton, Jefferson County and FRICO.
