Bear Creek Little Wonders: "Oh Deer!"

When: Wed., Dec. 23, 10-11:15 a.m. 2009

Here in Colorado Springs, we may lack some of the Christmas magic of New England. But one thing we have on those taciturn, pasty plum-pudding eaters is a huge deer population. And you can't get much closer to Santa than Dasher and Dancer and all of those guys, right? So if you've got a 2- or 3-year-old, consider taking him or her to this morning's 10 a.m. "Oh Deer!" indoor-and-outdoor activity session at Bear Creek Nature Center (245 Bear Creek Road, 520-6387). Among other things, you'll learn about what deer eat, look for tracks, and maybe see Blitzen wandering around the Bear Creek area. OK, you probably won't see a reindeer, exactly, but still — this is a cheap ($3), healthy, distinctly Colorado way to play up Santa mythology. — Kirk Woundy
