Southeast Colorado Heritage
Much of the southeast region in Colorado is akin to a giant aviary. Found throughout the expansive prairie, more than 400 of the 625 species of North American birds can be seen living in or migrating through the area. In fact, the region boasts the greatest concentration of species to be viewed anywhere in North America. The southeast region also contains nationally significant historic sites such as Camp Amache — one of ten WWII Japanese Internment Camps — Bent's Old Fort, the Santa Fe Trail, Boggsville, the Sand Creek Massacre Site, as well the archaeological and paleontological sites of Picketwire, Picture and Vogel Canyons, and the Comanche National Grasslands.
