A “Living Laboratory,” HPEC shares with residents examples of community design, land stewardship, eco-literacy, and most importantly, sustainable living that teaches residents how to live in harmony with the land.
With Colorado’s continued growth, comes the importance of managing the natural development. High Plains Environmental Center specializes in conserving and restoring the unique native biodiversity of Colorado in the midst of development and teaches others how to do the same. HPEC’s exhibits and extensive gardens demonstrate how to balance wildlife in our backyards and the ever-important conservation of water through the use of native plants.
Boasting trails, a community garden, and a native plant nursery are just some of the many reasons why High Plains Environmental Center is a valuable gem to residents living at The Lakes at Centerra. They offer monthly workshops and educational lecture series as well as hands-on activities for all ages that are sure to help you further appreciate your natural surroundings.
