The Evergreen Nature Center aspires to foster contagious enthusiasm and life-long respect for the natural world by providing fun and inspiring educational experiences throughout the Bear Creek Watershed. Kids will love our Touch Table with real animal furs and antlers, and grown-ups will enjoy the animal and bird displays. We have lots of information about the natural environment in the area and a beautiful view of the Lake. View a short video about the Nature Center - by RangeTracker

Executive Director - Vanessa HayesEvergreen Newspapers 2012 Summer Guide says
"...stop by the Evergreen Audubon's matchless lakeside Nature Center and learn about the area's land-lubbing populations. The Evergreen Nature Center offers a variety of classes and seminars, and extra-comfortable library, numerous attractive and informative exhibits, and plenty of touchables for young naturalists who prefer to see with their hands."
Evergreen Nature Center is seeking volunteers to staff the Nature Center. Please also see our list of other Volunteer Opportunities.
