444 acres and 6 miles of trails lead you through developing forests, wetlands, prairies, and agricultural fields. Trails are open year-round from sunrise to sunset. Education Center and offices open Monday-Friday, 8:30AM to 4:30PM.
We’re here to educate and enlighten! We link the landscape to people, giving children and adults an awareness and appreciation of the natural environment through hands-on experiences and free exploration.
We’re unique by nature! With almost a square mile, and over 400 acres of land,our geography includes emerging forests,natural wetlands and a restored prairie. Through our mission of being the guiding example of restoration, we’re returning this urban / suburban area to pre-settlement conditions, and establishingan environmental conservancy and natural habitat that inspires exploration and cultivates stewardships.
