    Douglas-Hart Nature Center is a delightful place to bring your child for an afternoon adventure. Perhaps a jaunt down the nature trail would suit your fancy? Maybe you would prefer to watch birds, chipmunks and other wild-life through a picture window? Whether performing impromptu plays with the puppets in the discovery room, taking a class (offered on a variety of topics), or simply enjoying the visual displays and library about area flora and fauna, the Douglas-Hart Nature Center is a valuable resource not to be missed!

    This is probably the most family oriented facility for learning about about how the wildlife and fauna benefit us all.
