Description

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, located in Commerce City, Colo., is the largest refuge in the National Wildlife System in the U.S. Nowhere else can you get the vastness of open prairie with views of the Front Range and the Denver skyline. And the refuge is loaded with a wide variety of wildlife to boot. The eastern plains of Colorado used to have thousands of bison roaming the open prairie.
