for an exciting presentation on the Animals of Pokemon
When: Thursday, September 7, 2017, 5:30 t0 7:30 pm, Where: The Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park
Did you know that many of the characters from the popular Pokémon games were inspired by real animals? During this unique program, learn about the real defense strategies animals use to protect themselves, find shelter, and find food.
For example, Froakie is based off of a frog and uses water as a defense. Pidgey is based off of a pigeon and uses wing attacks just like in real life.
There will be five live animal ambassadors that have “characters” in the Pokémon games / shows. We will discuss natural history, stories, diets, habitats, conservation and more!
This free event is made possible by the Town of Castle Rock and it’s non-profit partner, Douglas Land Conservancy. Donations of $10-$20 per family are suggested to help further the program.
Join Douglas County Outdoors and Douglas Land Conservancy for this free annual event.

Plein Air Painting Event
Each 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. This year’s event was a resounding success, and plans are already underway for next year’s Third Annual Plein Air Event.
