Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center’s mission is to foster appreciation and inspire stewardship of the natural world through quality environmental education, conservation practices, and outdoor experiences for visitors of all ages and capabilities. Our 10 miles of Hiking trails (3.5 miles are paved), Beach Access, and Visitor Center are open to the public 7 days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center (CNC) provides a unique opportunity for you to learn and explore the outdoors. With property on both the Minnesota and Wisconsin sides of the scenic St. Croix River, we are able to preserve wildlife habitat while also providing educational opportunities. Hiking trails wind throughout the tall pines, oak savanna, restored prairies, wooded ravines, around the apple orchard, and along the river of the 425 acre main property north of Hasting, Minnesota, with its world-class Visitor’s Center. Wildlife abounds in the restored prairie and wooded bluffs on the 300 acre Wisconsin nature preserve. We invite you to become a member or to visit CNC! Carpenter Nature Center is a 501 C 3 organization and all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Admission is free and we’re almost always open! We’re only closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and New Years Day. Come and enjoy the quiet, serene world of nature.
