About Fenner

Welcome to Fenner Nature Center. Our focus since the park opened in the fall of 1959 has been outdoor education and environmental awareness. Fenner Nature Center features 130 acres of mixed habitat with approximately 4 miles of trails,  through maple groves, pine forests, swamp forests, old fields, and 3 different ponds. Fenner Nature center is an ideal place to hike, view or photograph wildlife, picnic, or just relax.

The Visitor Center houses an exhibit room, library/ classroom, gift shop, restrooms, and staff offices. Fenner Nature Center is in a convenient location and offers free entry to visitors so that they may enjoy the beauty of nature.  We hope to foster a greater awareness, understanding and appreciation of the natural world and thus a commitment to preserve it.

Our building is handicap accessible and we will do our best to accommodate any needs on an individual basis. Two main trails have a blacktopped surface for easy use for strollers, wheelchairs and those with mobility impairments. Benches are also located around the trails for rest and relaxation.
