Welcome to Fenner Nature Center. Fenner Nature Center is an environmental education center encompassing 134 acres. Now run by the non-profit Fenner Conservancy, the property includes over four miles of trails, including two handicap-accessible paved trail loops, 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. Inside the Visitor Center, check out our collection of live native reptiles and amphibians; watch songbirds, deer and wild turkeys through our large picture windows; and explore our hands-on children's exhibits. Scholarships for Fenner programs are available to those who demonstrate need. No bikes, fishing/collecting, or unsanctioned alcohol, please.
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.
