Gazette Premium Content Concerts to raise awareness about the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg

By Jen Mulson Published: July 18, 2013

I visited the Wild Animal Sanctuary for the first time in June. I had never heard of this 720-acre refuge for wild animals, but there it was, out east of Denver on the plains. It's home to more than 300 bears, tigers, lions, wolves and other animals who have been rescued from abusive situations, like circuses, and from people who thought a wild animal would be a good idea as a pet. The sanctuary is hosting free concerts this summer to bring awareness to what it does. The next one is 3-8:30 p.m. Saturday, and features music by Rocky Mountain Brassworks, Oversoul'd and Wildlife Control. Before or after the music, you can take a gander at the creatures; $15, $7.50 ages 3-12, 1946 County Road 53, Keenesburg. Details: 1-303-536-0118,
