Fern Hollow Nature Center inspires people of all ages to appreciate the environment through educational programs and opportunities to discover the natural resources of the Sewickley Valley parks.

Since 1997, Fern Hollow Nature Center has been a destination for local schools, scouts, families, and individuals of all ages to experience the natural beauty of Sewickley Heights Borough, by admiring the region’s rolling hills, as well as its vast creek system.

We are proud to have become a trusted educational and environmental resource for the community. In welcoming over 10,000 visitors each year, it is our mission to provide our members and the local community with unique learning opportunities that foster a love and appreciation of our environment. Our grounds are open to the public from dawn to dusk. Members enjoy rental privileges and priority/discounted registration to our programming.
