Nature Education

Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park is your place to connect with nature, featuring a visitor center with hands-on activities, live animal exhibits both indoors and out, and almost 5 miles of nature trails.

Trained staff and Volunteer Naturalists offer year-round programming that engage all ages in outdoor learning to create awareness, appreciation, and knowledge of the natural world. Offerings include a wide-variety of public programs, special events, and camps. We also offer field trips, presentations, and birthday parties by request.
