Our Philosophy

We strive to provide enriching opportunities to engage visitors with the natural world. All our programs and classes are small and uniquely designed to provide an intimate experience with nature. Our programming is geared to facilitate direct contact experiences with nature, especially for children. Current research indicates that many nature centers that provide educational programming are missing an opportunity with lecture only format programming. We are unique in connecting people as closely to nature as we can. If connection to nature facilitates empathy and stewardship, how will the next generation take care of the earth if they don’t care about it?

We invite you to join us for a nature experience at the Preserve. Our small dedicated staff of educators and naturalists looks forward to seeing you soon!
