Discover Spring Island Arrange a Visit

Nature Center

The Nature Center is the focal point of all nature-related activities on Spring Island. It is a library, a museum, a zoo and a classroom. It is the place where schoolchildren from surrounding communities discover the wonders of the natural world around them. 

The displays at the Nature Center include a variety of live animals, such as reptiles, amphibians, and fish. The center also features touch tables, an interactive island field guide and preserved specimens. Exhibits feature plants and animals that are native to the local area, allowing residents and visitors to learn more about the habitats they encounter while on Spring Island.

The Nature Center is also an educational institution for our members, and activities range from bird-song seminars to nocturnal owl prowls to something as advanced as our 12-week Master Naturalist Course.
