Our mission is to provide nature education and encourage stewardship in an urban forest. We look forward to your visit!
A truly unique community resource, the Louisville Nature Center offers wonderful opportunities for nature study and recreation--right in the heart of the city!
Bring a lunch and relax at our picnic tables or under the covered gazebo.
Among our unique features are: a native wildflower garden and pond, butterfly gardens, hiking trails through the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, a one-of-a-kind bird blind, wildlife exhibits, Beargrass Creek watershed exhibit, a meeting room, a nature gift shop and our library--a great place to do research and spend some time indoors when the weather is too hot, too cold or rainy to study nature outside.
