Milkweed puzzle meadow exhibit Explore the Nature Center's newly renovated indoor natural history exhibits.  Woodland, wetland, and meadow displays depict southeastern Connecticut's unique habitats and wildlife, many of which can be found throughout our beautiful sanctuary.

Get a close-up view of live frogs, fish, turtles, and snakes. Meet magnified centipedes, ants and mushrooms in our Life Under a Log exhibit, experience a “Night in the Meadow” in our intimate theater, or watch bird flight patterns as they stream across our colorful meadow mural.  

You can learn to recognize local birds in our classroom exhibit featuring over 200 mounted bird specimens from the Gurdon Bill collection. Other exhibits feature birds eggs, nests and skulls.

Our informative indoor exhibits help enhance human understanding and appreciation of local natural areas, instilling respect for the living and non-living natural elements essential to both environmental and human health.
