Three Rivers is home to hundreds of species of animals indigenous to the woods, prairies and wetlands here. If you want to get up close and personal or learn a little more, try visiting one of our nature centers! You might learn about the unique characteristics of different wildlife species, conduct your own science experiments or even pet a wild animal.
Our staff of naturalists is dedicated to sharing their knowledge and love of nature and to teaching the importance of environmental stewardship to visitors. Educational opportunities abound, from seasonal programs and events to customized group adventures.
Our Natural Resources division is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the health of the habitats and wildlife populations in our parks. Come explore on your own, or take part in one of our Naturalist-led classes. It’s a fun, hands-on learning experience for the whole family.
We rely on the support of volunteers to maintain the high quality programs and operations at our nature centers. If you're interested in becoming an important part of our team of volunteers, please contact us.
