Situated on 400-acres — the largest privately owned green space in the city limits- the Schuylkill Nature Center offers great programming for curious naturalists-to-be and their parents. For instance, every third Thursday from 1:30pm to 3pm, Nature Tots introduces 2 to 4 year-olds to outdoor adventure through stories, songs and crafts. A range of hiking trails — some as short as 1/4 mile — wind through wetlands, meadows, and forests. The colorful Discovery Center is the hands on place to learn about honeybees, insects, and birdcalls. There’s even a bird blind overlooking courtyard feeders.
