Explore the Nature Center's newly renovated indoor natural history
exhibits. Woodland, wetland, and meadow displays depict
southeastern Connecticut's unique habitats and wildlife, many of
which can be found throughout our beautiful sanctuary.
Get a close-up view of live frogs, fish, turtles, and snakes. Meet
magnified centipedes, ants and mushrooms in our Life Under a
Log exhibit, experience a Night in the Meadow
in our intimate theater, or watch bird flight patterns as
they stream across our colorful meadow mural.
You can learn to recognize local birds in our classroom exhibit
featuring over 200 mounted bird specimens from the Gurdon Bill
collection. Other exhibits feature birds eggs, nests and skulls.
Our informative indoor exhibits help enhance human understanding
and appreciation of local natural areas, instilling respect
for the living and non-living natural elements essential
to both environmental and human health.
