Mt. Cuba Center

Spanning 550 acres, these natural lands are located in Delaware’s Appalachian Piedmont. Groups will experience natural rolling hills, stream valleys, rock outcrops, deciduous forests, and the notable flora and fauna that are indigenous to the region. Trails and ponds with different seasonal plants allow groups to plan a day out in nature that reflects their interests, while also getting exposure to the natural diversity and complexity of Mother Nature. The center offers guided group tours with a knowledgeable docent, and tours may cover seasonal highlights, an introduction to ecological gardening, and opportunities to learn about native plants.
