Join Douglas Land Conservancy, Nature’s Educators and the Town of Castle Rock

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!

Register Now!

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.
