Boo! At Bear Creek
Friday, October 23, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Bear Creek Nature Center
245 Bear Creek Road, Colorado Springs, CO 80906

Press Release

El Paso County’s Bear Creek Nature Center has found ways to continue offering quality educational programs while adhering to Covid19 guidelines and best practices. They also continually strive to create programming that is innovative and engaging. Boo! At Bear Creek is their newest special event offering.



Boo! At Bear Creek, to be offered on the evening of October 23, will take place entirely outdoors. The goal is to chill, thrill and ultimately educate in a way that is entertaining and celebrates the Halloween spirit. Many of nature’s creatures, while playing important roles in the ecosystem, tend to give folks the heebie jeebies and Boo! At Bear Creek will help unravel and dispel some common myths about these misunderstood organisms.

Nature Center volunteers will lead groups of ten at a time along the trails, encountering creepy characters that will send a shiver down the spine then impart knowledge to the mind about creatures like bats, spiders, rats and snakes.

The format will include safety measures including small groups, outdoor setting, and mask requirements so participants can have seasonal fun in a safe environment.

Participants must preregister for specific staggered start times that run from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. It is recommended for ages 7 and up due to the mild fright factor.

The cost is $6 per person. Space is limited so register ahead by calling 719-520-6387 or by visiting www.elpasocountynaturecenters.com

Press Release

In the midst of the pandemic’s economic insecurity, Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity (PPHFH) is taking on the challenge of building a second ReStore to help raise funds and awareness for affordable housing in El Paso County.

GROUNDBREAKING / GROUND BLESSING DETAILS:

Date: Thursday, September 24, 2020

Time: 12:00 - 12:30 pm

Location: 6250 Tutt Blvd, Colorado Springs, CO 80923 (directly behind Gripstone Climbing & Fitness gym)



ReStore Northeast will greatly expand our capacity to serve the El Paso County community and further the mission of Pikes Peak Habitat with the support of donors, shoppers, and volunteers. Construction in northeast Colorado Springs is slated to begin in October with expectations of a grand opening in the spring of 2021.

The groundbreaking/ground blessing ceremony will include a presentation by PPHFH Executive Director/CEO Kris Medina. Also attending will be Chief Operations Officer Jeff White and Director of Strategic Partnerships Iain Probert. Light refreshments will be served. Please note that capacity limits, social distancing, and sanitization guidelines will be followed.

The ReStore helps builders, contractors, suppliers, and individuals by accepting tax-deductible donations of new and slightly used construction material, plumbing and electrical supplies, cabinets, home furnishings, and more which are sold to the public at discounts 50%-70% below retail. Net proceeds help provide permanent, affordable housing for qualifying future Habitat homeowners. The ReStore also helps other homeowners in our community by offering savings on home-improvement items.

PPHFH’s first ReStore, located at 411 S. Wahsatch Ave, Colorado Springs, Colorado, opened in 2004 and has since become a store recognized by Habitat for Humanity International and Habitat affiliates nationwide for its business achievements. Last year the ReStore helped fund six Habitat homes in El Paso County. It also kept 1,304 tons of donated material out of the landfill, and regularly recycles porcelain (which goes to creating road base for the city), metal, and cardboard, generating more revenue for building houses. It has also been awarded the Colorado Institute for Social Impact / Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado “Social Impact Business of the Year” PRISM Award in 2020 and 2018.
