Woodcock Nature Center
The Woodcock Nature Center is a private, non-profit resource for environmental education serving schools, youth and families in Southwestern Connecticut since 1972. Located on 149 acres of state-protected land, the Woodcock Preserve includes a pond, wetlands, and 4 miles of publicly accessible woodland trails. The Education Center is home to a variety of rescued or injured local and exotic creatures, snakes, frogs, lizards, and birds of prey. A full-time, professional staff supports classroom-outreach, on-site field trips, and our extremely popular young naturalist day-camps. Woodcock Nature Center touches thousands each year, both young and old alike, and enriches and informs our essential connection to nature. Woodcock Preserve is a haven for aquatic life and a remarkable variety of birds. Along our trails youﾒll find historic stone walls and stands of old maple, beech, oak and hickory trees. An Everglades-style boardwalk allows rare access through part of the rich, abundant wetlands nestled in the woods. In these graceful surroundings, everyone can experience the rich, renewing world of nature. Our woodland trails are open and free to all, sunrise to sunset, every day of the year.
