A Little About Us

The historic scout cabin in Schermerhorn Park has been transformed into a wonderful nature Center. Animal and plant exhibits native to the area are displayed throughout the center. Exploration drawers are filled with hands-on materials to give visitors an opportunity to learn about nature up close. Environmental education classes and workshops are offered each month. The adjoining park grounds, trails, and creek make a perfect setting for science and nature studies. Visitors are pleasantly surprised with the wide variety of activities and materials available.
