Celebrating 20 Years in 2022
Majestic View Nature Center started on Trails Day 2002 and has served over 300,000 people since. In a 2019 community survey, 28% of Arvadans responded they had visited the Nature Center. So after 20 years of environmental education and connecting with so many people, we thought we’d celebrate! Save the dates and check out the fun activities below as we celebrate 20 years at Majestic View in 2022.

Then get excited about nature and have fun on our trails with the whole family in the afternoon. Discover booths, crafts, live animals, take the trail passport challenge, and connect with the amazing community we have here at Majestic View through Arvada’s trails. Then join a guided nature walk with an interpretive guide to appreciated the trails and the nature that surrounds them.

We’ve celebrated pollinators in our classes and our garden, but let’s celebrate pollinator homes across Arvada.
Garden tours can be gorgeous, but have you ever attended from the perspective of a bee? Travel around Arvada to discover these native and pollinator friendly hubs to get inspired for your garden. This kid-friendly garden tour will explore pollinator-specific gardens as you navigate and collect stamps from every stop for an entry to win a pollinator garden gift basket.
And everyone can participate and help provide conservation data with the Nature Center’s pollinator project on Speak Up Arvada coming early May. Learning where our pollinator gardens are across the City can help the Nature Center determine migration pathways. And for those that love sharing about their pollinator garden can apply to be a garden tour host, deadline May 31.
