Mission Statement

The Great Valley Nature Center's mission is to provide quality environmental education programs and recreational experiences to children and adults in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Description

The Great Valley Nature Center was established in 1974. Our colonial-era fieldstone bank barn serves as the education building. The 10.5 acres provide several natural area field study that includes a stream, pond, wetland, field and woodland habitats. Also featured:

  • Birds of Prey Center for injured raptors that can not be returned to the wild
  • Replica Native American Lenape Village
  • Animal Exhibit/Discovery room
  • PA wildflower garden
  • Maple Sugar house and two-story Springhouse

The Great Valley Nature Center is now entering its 39th year and has a long and proud history of serving the surrounding community and region in providing quality environmental education programs and recreational experiences for children and adults. As a result, GVNC has a strong reputation for delivering programs that increase awareness and appreciation of the natural environment.

Our on-site and off-site programs are designed for preschoolers through seniors, including individuals with special needs. We reach over 40,000 children and adults annually in Chester County, Philadelphia and the surrounding region.
