Eastman Nature Center

Part of Elm Creek Park Reserve, Eastman Nature Center is nestled in the sugar maple floodplain forest of Rush Creek. Newly reconstructed, the 14,000-square-foot building features quiet reading and observation rooms, large classrooms, a professional exhibit area with wildlife watching and an open-air deck. Explore the nearby display gardens, floating boardwalk, pond observation blind and amphitheater. Opportunities to enhance your visit are available through cell phone audio stops, trail guide sheets, exploration kits and interpretive signs. Just down the trail, let your children play ‘wild’ in the Nature Exploration Area where kids can dig, climb, make a fort or dam, and engage their imaginations, while adults play along or observe nearby.
