Nature Center

The Nature Center is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 1pm – 4pm.

The Nature Center is a natural history museum and the primary educational building. It offers a Bird Blind for easy viewing of birds as they visit feeders in the wildlife habitat garden. Where you can view the birds, but the birds can’t see you through a one-way viewing window overlooking the wildlife observation area. During summer months, there is an indoor beehive available for viewing the intricate workings of honeybees in a safe setting. Through a see-through pipe that leads outdoors, visitors can see hundreds of bees arrive and depart. The Nature Center is a wonderland of exhibits and discoveries for adults and kids! Take a close-up look at woodland creatures, fossils and rocks, Kentucky fish, a wetland display, a Native American setting, and hawks and owls (stuffed).

Additional learning areas include animal tracks, an herbarium, wood identification and the bird nest collection.

Complimentary crafts are provided, along with trail maps.

It is a rich resource for students, teachers, and parents who want to learn about Kentucky’s biological diversity and natural environment.

Younger children will love playing in new Magical Forest Imagination Station. It is just their size and all the animals are guaranteed to be child-friendly.

Maximum Occupancy: Theater style 150 people or classroom style 75 people (divided into three rooms)
