Prairie Homestead Self-Guided Tour

Plains Conservation Center

Presented and Managed by the City of Aurora

Join us at the Plains Conservation Center for a self-guided tour of our historical sod village and tipis. See what a Native American tipi camp might have looked like in the early 1800s. Immerse yourself in a replication of an 1880s prairie homestead village with authentic artifacts and, depending on the season, real farm animals.

Important Note: Please be advised that purchasing tickets on this website does not necessarily guarantee a ticket for the desired time. All guests must check in at the PCC Visitor Center with purchase confirmation prior to beginning self-guided tour in order to receive actual ticket/brochure. It is highly recommended that you call the PCC Visitor Center at 303-326-8380 prior to your arrival to verify if the desired time is available that day. Self-guided tours can only occur during non-programming times and during certain times of the year we have programs booked almost daily.

For a more in-depth experience sign up for one of our guided tours, usually held on Saturdays, or schedule a private tour by contacting Denver Botanic Gardens at info@botanicgardens.org or 720-865-3500.

The City of Aurora's Parks, Recreation & Open Space department's mission is to encourage active lifestyles and create healthy environments for people, nature and community.

Location: Plains Conservation Center, 21901 E. Hampden Avenue, Aurora, CO 80013
