Escape into the beauty and wonder of nature at Indian Creek Nature Center, featuring four miles of well-groomed trails through prairies, woodlands and wetlands.Amazing Space is Indian Creek Nature Center’s new building and campus that opened in September 2016. It provides endless opportunities for exploration and discovery, and serves as your gateway to the beautiful natural world outside its doors. Relax in the Bird Room, explore at the interactive watershed table, see how much energy the solar panels are producing at the Energy Portal, and pick up some raw honey or maple syrup in our Creekside Shop. Whether you come here to hike our scenic trails, see a concert in the amphitheater, participate in a yoga class, or to let your children play in the outdoor classroom, we know you’ll want to come back again and again. Trails open 365 days a year; snowshoes for rent during winter months. Indoor exhibits and Creekside Shop open year round: Mon.-Thurs. 9am-4pm and Fri.-Sat. 9am-6pm; and Sun. 12pm-6pm. Visit the website for a full calendar of programs and events.
