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. 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. 

American Indian and Indigenous Studies partners with Fenner Nature Center in programming based on traditional ecological knowledge, seasonal activities, and Indigenous cultural practices. AIIS and Fenner are currently collaborating on Snowsnake tournament, yearly sugar bush, Medicine Walks, birchbark basket workshops, and various other projects.
