The Interpretive Nature Center opened in July, 1998. It has become the center for environmental education programs throughout the county. The Nature Center is staffed with an environment education coordinator who organizes public, scout, school, and group programs both in-house and through outreach activities. Environmental displays include interactive dioramas featuring habitats within the park, animal taxidermy, a working honeybee hive, 'Discovery Zone" and children's nook. Many displays are 'hands on".
Did you know that we make our own honey? Well, not exactly - our local bees make the honey. We process it and our beekeeper bottles it. This delicious and healthy treat is sold year-round at the Interpretive Nature Center, and all profits go to the ACORNS organization which benefits the Genesee County Parks. We even have Honey Spread. Stop at the Nature Center and try it for yourself. You can even come and watch our busy bees at work (behind glass) and learn more about bees and how they make honey.
