Q:Can I bring my dog with me?


While we love all animals, unfortunately Fido is not allowed on Beaver Creek trails (although service dogs are always welcome). As a nature reserve, we are dedicated to providing a safe place for animals and plants of all kinds. Many of the birds and small mammals that call BCR home, can be scared or injured by dogs.

Q:How do I know if I placed my donation or program registration succesfully?


Once you have submitted your order, you will receive an email confirming donation or program registration.

Q:Can I change or cancel my program registration after I have submitted it?


Once your program registration is submitted, we cannot guarantee that it can be canceled or changed. If you realize you made a mistake or simply change your mind, please call Beaver Creek Reserve. We will make every effort to accommodate your request.

Q:Will Beaver Creek Reserve sell my email address or other personal information?


No. We only use personal information provided on order forms, such as a purchaser's name, email address, and physical address to keep track of event registration.

Q:How can I help BCR?


Beaver Creek Reserve is always looking for dedicated citizens to donate their time, talents, services, or materials. As a 501c3 non-profit monetary donations are tax deductible.
