Mission Statement

Environmental Education and Natural Habitat Preservation

Description

Rye Nature Center is owned by the City of Rye, NY and operated by The Friends of Rye Nature Center, a 501 (c) (3) educational non-profit. We have 47 acres of natural habitat with two miles of trails through forest, field and flood plain. Outstanding features include a quarry, Butterfly House, the ruins of the Parson's estate home, Blind Brook, ponds, wetlands, animal exhibits and scenic rock outcroppings. RNC serves tens of thousands of children each year with school programs, after-school programs, pre-school ecology classes and summer camp. We host several large events each year such as "Old Fashioned Winter's Afternoon" in February, "Earth Day Celebration" in April, "Strawberry Sunday" in May and "Fall Festival" in October. There are weekly programs for adults and families and a monthly art exhibit.
