White Memorial Conservation Center

The Center’s diverse habitat provides an ideal “outdoor classroom” for promoting awareness, understanding, and respect for the natural world. Programs may take place in the Nature Museum, on the grounds of White Memorial, or be presented in your classroom. Students can compare their own five senses to the senses other animals, get to know the local trees, learn about the life cycles of flowering plants, see live animals that illustrate adaptation, find out how herbivores and omnivores acquire food, go on a birding hike, and much more. Free camping is available for scout groups by reservation.
