Castle Rock, CO 80109

Skip the mall and have your 2019 holiday photos taken outdoors! Enjoy a photo shoot with Santa and support Douglas Land Conservancy at the same time. DLC has teamed up with Santa again this year for a special morning of family photos at
Philip S. Miller Park, Millhouse.

The whole family is welcome, even four legged members. The cost is $30 (+ processing fees) for a mini outdoor photo session and is payable at sign up. Your photos will be emailed to you by Monday December 2 and will include 2-6 images, printable up to 8×10. Meet at the Philip S. Miller Park Millhouse for hot cocoa and enjoy the fire pit before pictures. Santa will be outdoors and waiting to meet your family.

Reserve your spot with Santa here!

Guided Hikes

guidedhikeDouglas Land Conservancy offers several guided hike opportunities throughout the year. All hikes are free and open to the public. DLC does suggest a small donation per person attending each hike (usually $5 to $10) to help us continue our mission of the protection of open space in our region of Colorado. All hike dates, times and locations are subject to change. Please check back often for updates or emailĀ [email protected] for more information or to reserve a spot for a certain hike.

Plein Air Painting Event

2014-plein-air-piccollageEach year, DLC invites several renowned artists to visit private and conserved properties in Douglas County as part of a fundraiser. The artists paint during the week, and then a portion of the proceeds from all art sales benefits the land conservancy. Last year’s event was a resounding success, and plans are already underway for DLC’s Sixth Annual Plein Air Event, coming up in June of 2019.
