This renovated 1833 dairy barn offers a variety of information and interpretive displays, such as the history tree display, documenting history by the tree's rings. Other educational exhibits assist visitors in identifying native woods, flora and fauna.

Interpretive displays are informative for young and old alike, with a special hands-on area for youngsters.  While exploring the Nature Center, be sure to observe the hand-hewn beams and pegged construction of this historic structure.

The Nature Center also provides an excellent venue for programs.

The Bird Room offers an excellent place to relax and observe our feathered friends....and a few squirrels. It is well stocked with identification tools and comfy chairs.
