ATTENTION ALL BUTTINGER NATURE CENTER ENTHUSIASTS!
The Buttinger Nature Center is temporarily closed in preparation for the upcoming construction of our new environmental and education center. All of our education programs and activities, including Watershed Nature Camp, are operating throughout our construction phase.
Beginning in March 2013, the Education Department is excited to announce the start of staffed drop-in hours in the Kingsford Community Room. Visit the nature center critters in their relocated home, chat with a Teacher-Naturalist, learn about our upcoming public programs or pick up a trail map and get information about seasonal outdoor happenings on the Reserve trails. Public visiting hours are currently Thursdays and Saturdays, 2:00-4:30PM.
Beginning June 22, public drop-in hours for the Kingsford Community Room will be on Saturday afternoons only, from 2:00-4:30PM.
No pre-registration or appointment is necessary, families and adults are welcome. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
The new center will increase our program capacity by more than doubling our available space, provide teaching and research facilities to increase the rigor and sophistication of our scientific and educational curriculum, and model innovative behaviors and technologies to reduce energy and water consumption and restore environmental health.
