Upcoming Nature Center Programs

Now that spring has sprung, lots of things are happening in and around The Nature Center.

Stop by to visit and learn more about the special focus for April and May – Migratory Birds. Spend time exploring our many permanent exhibits and (in the Lakeview Gallery) see what research is going on in Steele Creek Park. Sit and watch the pollinators as they visit the Monarch Watch Butterfly Garden, then find out what’s blooming in our new Native Plants Garden.

And be sure to take advantage of the many activities scheduled for the next two months, highlighted below.
