Tucked into a hillside at the edge of the preserve, the Nature Center offers much for the visitor. A great variety of birds visit the outdoor feeding station and can be enjoyed from indoors via picture windows and microphones. Exhibits showcase the many ecosystems of Fernwood, the animals that live in the region, and items of seasonal interest. Visitors also can see live animals including an active beehive and local reptiles and amphibians. Temporary, interactive displays and a small library allow children to have fun while they learn.
