I just read a great post on a blog with tips from Barbara Spagnuolo, Natural Resource Specialist for the Town of Castle Rock, CO on how to safely enjoy wildlife with your kids. It's too much to list here, but the post is worth checking out: http://www.fivehens.com/experience_wildlife_with_kids/

They had another good one on hiking with kids too. Here's the link to that one: http://www.fivehens.com/happy-trails-hiking-with-kids/
