Have you been to the new Nature Interpretation Center at the Bradner Nature Preserve?
The Interpretation Center is open 365 days a year from 8:00 am – dusk. It is free and filled with interactive learning for all ages.
The Windows on Wildlife overlooks pollinator gardens and has the sounds of nature piped into the room. The underground room teaches about soil, burrowers, and ants. The main children’s space has a library, swinging chairs for kids, an activity table and a magnification table for exploring nature.
We hope you enjoy this space that celebrates nature. There are also miles of trails to walk to take full advantage of the health benefits of being in nature.
