The Village is Alive with


The Village is known for its beautiful views of the Front Range along with its spectacular pine forest, but a closer look reveals an amazing ecosystem full of fascinating and majestic wildlife.  Nature has provided the Village with an abundance of animals…everything from a wide array of birds, bunnies, and raccoons to deer and elk.  You might even get a glimpse of a bobcat or black bear!
