COVID-19 UPDATE 11/19/20:
Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in our area and in accordance
with the Allegheny County Health Department’s new advisory to stay home
other than work, school or essential activities, we have decided to cancel
all nature center programs for the next 30 days or until the advisory is lifted.
Even though our programs are primarily outside and we have been following rigorous safety precautions, we believe it is in the best interest of our families
and our community to keep each other safe by staying apart.
Participants will be notified directly, but can email our Education Director,
Susie Moffett, with any questions or clarifications.

We will also be closing our building to the public for the winter
other than scheduled classes, activities or rentals until March 2021.

Our grounds remain open for use by the public and we encourage you
to explore our trails and outdoor classroom throughout the winter months.
If you have questions for the nature center staff
please call 412-741-6136 or email
and someone will get back to you shortly.
