Indian Creek Nature Center is opening its brand new Amazing Space building and campus, and you’re invited! Join us for Grand Opening Weekend on September 16, 17 and 18 as we celebrate our new space. This once-in-a-lifetime event will feature a family-friendly schedule of guided trail hikes, kids’ crafts, nature face painting, evening campfires, building tours and more throughout the weekend! All the activities are FREE and open to the public. You can view the full schedule of events on our website: http://indiancreeknaturecenter.org/amazing-space-grand-opening/.
Our new Amazing Space facility features a glass bird viewing room; exhibit hall with interactive watershed exhibit; auditorium; catering kitchen; outdoor patio/deck; classrooms; and offices. Immediately surrounding the building is a brand new wetland full of turtles, frogs and fish; access to our woodland trails; and prairie habitat to explore. There is so much to do at the Nature Center that you’ll want to come back again and again!
