Prairie Homestead Self-Guided Tour

Join the Plains Conservation Center for a self-guided tour of the historical sod village and tipis. See what a Native American tipi camp might have looked like in the early 1800s. Immerse yourself in a replication of an 1880s prairie homestead village with authentic artifacts and, depending on the season, real farm animals.

Please Note: All guests must check in at the PCC Visitor Center with purchase confirmation prior to beginning self-guided tour in order to receive site condition updates and the actual self-guided brochure.

For a more in-depth experience, sign up for a guided tour or program! Join us for a “Plains Conservation Center Wagon Tour” on a Saturday or schedule a private tour by contacting Denver Botanic Gardens at or 720-865-3500.

The City of Aurora’s Parks, Recreation & Open Space department’s mission is to encourage active lifestyles and create healthy environments for people, nature and community.

If you’re looking for more occasions for getting your kids active & outdoors, check out our blog on the 20 Best Parks & Playgrounds in Denver! We’re fortunate to live in a city that is host to some extremely unique parks and playgrounds. Kids will love exploring & playing on the interesting features and adults will love seeing their kids in their natural element! What better way to get your kids some exercise than a fun, free day at the park?
