Colorado Wildlife Education

The Schneegas Wildlife Foundation also teaches conservation and wildlife programs to groups of all ages, in the belief that rehabilitation must be accompanied by public education to be the most beneficial. People often do not appreciate an animal they have never seen and we offer them a window into another world. It is our goal to increase the public’s appreciation for wildlife and each person’s feelings of responsibility to protect habitat and respect wildlife. SWF operates with the motto of conservation through education. Dr. Bingham instructs Colorado Mountain Collegeís veterinary technician students on bear lab day

Homestead Museum

Homestead Museum

Over the years, we have hosted a variety of groups and individuals at the Schneegas Wildlife Foundation and we believe they have all left with a greater understanding and appreciation of wild creatures.

From elementary school to high school classes, service clubs, Veterinary Technician college students, and Division of Wildlife citizen volunteers, we have benefited from their visits and we believe they have as well.

A greater appreciation of local history also results from a Foundation visit. The homestead was once part of the largest ranch in the Colorado River valley, with a historic sandstone home still on the property. A historic cabin houses a private collection of Schneegas and Limbach family heirlooms and historical artifacts on display as another educational opportunity enjoyed by both adults and school children.

Due to the nature of the work we do, visits to the Schneegas Wildlife Foundation are by appointment only but we welcome private tours of the facility for educational groups, potential volunteers and interested donors. To schedule a tour, please call Nanci Limbach at 970-876-5676 or e-mail psswildlifefoundation@gmail.com. Natalie introduces the resident Arctic Fox to students before his yearly physical
