Do you enjoy hiking in the woods or just sitting back, learning about nature?  The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center offers outdoor recreation, nature education, and many ways to just relax and enjoy the wilderness.  This first-class discovery and nature center is an outreach program of the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences and is open to the public every day from sunrise to sunset.  Kreher offers interesting environmental education programs throughout the year for all ages and it serves as the outdoor classroom for the university and area schools.  With more than six miles of well-groomed trails, visitors can enjoy a leisurely walk or vigorous hike to the pond, butterfly garden, waterfall, or any of the many features hidden in the forest.  Families will enjoy the unique and shaded Nature Playground with a human-size eagle's nest and beavers lodge.

The Nature Center’s calendar is full of fun and unique activities for all ages, and is available on their website.  For updates and more information, explore their website and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
