A Special Holiday Message from our alpacas - Nash and Radar (video follows below)
Thank you from the bottom of our alpaca hearts for supporting Beaver Ponds.

If you haven't yet given a year-end donation to help support our programs, please consider a gift of $40 or more today!  Please click the Donate Now button below or feel free to send a check to PO Box 995, Fairplay CO 80440.

We've herd...I mean heard, that the nice folks who sit on the Beaver Ponds Board of Directors aren't just generous with treats when they come for a visit ~ they're matching every dollar donated with another dollar.  That's a lot of dollars!


Your generosity keeps us healthy and available for visitors to enjoy...which is important because we touch on many aspects of the Beaver Ponds mission to provide environmental education that gives individuals of all ages the tools and knowledge to become better stewards of the earth.


Our food, micro-fodder, is grown by a system in our greenhouse that allows Beaver Ponds to be more earth sensitive by saving water and fuel.  We then do our part by creating rich compost that our buddy Eric incorporates into our many grow beds at Beaver Ponds.  We also donate our hair once a year for yarn to make sustainable clothing and crafts.

Plus in addition to us Alpacas, our Llama -- Donzi, angoras - Jellybean and Kalahari, and last but certainly not least our Cashmeres - Viola and Miranda get farm-fresh greens year round!

As for our other principal programs of Beaver Ecology, Medicinal and Native Plants, and Healthy Forest Management ~ we leave that to the beavers, moose, and humans ~ we can't have all the fun can we?

Happy Holidays from our barn to yours!  And please remember to make a donation to Beaver Ponds before the end of 2016.



Finally ~ a HUGE shout of thanks to Jess Claflin for the great portrait of us!

Love,

The alpacas, barnyard goats, and chicken friends too
