Education Programs and Presentations
A large part of Indigo Mountain's mission focuses on the importance of wildlife education. We offer a wide variety of wildlife programs to schools, clubs, organizations, state parks and neighborhood groups and can be catered to specific age groups. The Discover Wildlife programs incorporate powerpoint presentations and lectures to create public awareness of the plight of wildlife and exotic animals.

Living With Wildlife
Learn how to co-exist with wildlife in your own backyard. In this jam packed program we discuss what to do and what not to do when you see a mountain lion, black bear or coyote in the wild. We also give tips on safeguarding your home, family and pets.
This program features Colorado’s largest predator. We share information regarding behavior, habitat, and all about estivation (hibernation). The discussion also includes what to do when you are faced with a bear in the wild.
Everything you always wanted to know about these elusive predators including their characteristics, behavior, habitat and social hierarchy. We talk about the “Big Bad Wolf” and how the public has learned to fear and hate them.
Since life began on this planet many species have died due to natural processes and biological conditions. Today, many of our species are dying off due to habitat degradation, environmental pollution and exploitation. This program discusses what man has done to the ecosystems or biomes, and how we can attempt to fix the damage that has been done before it is too late. Endangered means there is still time...extinction is forever.
The Trade of Exotic Animals
This program discusses the legal and illegal trade of wild and exotic animals. It delves into “Canned Hunts”, fur farms, animal auctions, animals as pets and overseas trade of animals.
This program provides an overview of the animals indigenous to Colorado from the tiny pika to cougars, bears and mountain goats.
