To provide nature education and encourage stewardship in an urban forest.
A truly unique community resource, the Louisville Nature Center offers wonderful opportunities for nature study and recreation--right in the heart of the city!
Among our unique features are: a native wildflower garden and pond, butterfly gardens, hiking trails through the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, a one-of-a-kind bird blind, wildlife exhibits, Beargrass Creek watershed exhibit, a meeting room, and our library--a great place to do research and spend some time indoors when the weather is too hot, cold, or rainy to study nature outside.
I'd never been to the Louisville Nature Center and it's a blast! I hope to volunteer there long term or for as long as they need me! It's a great place to take kids, get out in nature or just spend some time with the family!
