One World Conservation Center

One World Conservation Center teaches students and scouts about local ecology and global biodiversity. Students and scouts can view a beaver habitat in the meadow, watch birds in the wetlands, and walk the trails through the fruit and nut trees in the woods. The Center's school programs are thought-provoking and provide engaging hands-on activities: topics include Sun, Soil, Water, and Air; Hoots and Howls; Home, Sweet Habitat; Drop in the Bucket; and others. Groups can also learn about rain gardens, and improving water quality, through the Stormwater Management Project.
