Nature At The Confluence
Connecting People With Nature
Nature At The Confluence is a new urban environmental center that opened in 2017. We invite you to stop in for a visit to discover nature right in the middle of an urban area! We’re located on 100 acres surrounded by the Rock River, Turtle Creek and Kelly Creek, and you’ll find scenic beauty during every season.
The campus offers a 5-acre prairie restoration, learning gardens, pollinator gardens and we have programs throughout the year for all ages and interests!
Experience the Woods of Wonder at Nature At The Confluence
We declare 2020 as a Year of Wonder at Nature At The Confluence. We believe that nature is magical and amazing, and the more time and opportunity people have to spend time in it, the better. We look forward to rolling out the Woods of Wonder themed programs for children and adults in 2020 – many are free! Click here to view our Woods Of Wonder programs.
Time Travelers Learning Series
The Time Traveler Discovery Series will explore the fascinating history of this land and the people who lived or worked near the confluence of Turtle Creek and the Rock River over the centuries. Programs are offered for kids and adults.
Below is a sampling of our upcoming events. Visit our calendar to see all we have to offer and come see us soon!
