An Outdoor Classroom
As an “Oasis on the Plains,” Fountain Creek Nature Center is a spectacular location for students to see the wonders of the wetlands. The nature center is situated on a terrace overlooking the Fountain Creek floodplain.
Trails and wildlife observations provide students with an opportunity to study the wetland environment. Guided programs assist students with developing an awareness, understanding and appreciation for the many plants and animals that inhabit the park’s communities.
Professional environmental educators and trained volunteer naturalist lead each program. All guided programs include a packet with pre/post visit activities, vocabulary and additional resources.
Picnic and playground area is just 1/4 miles from the Nature Center at Duckwood Road if the group wishes to have lunch.
