Carpenter Nature Center protects 725 acres of natural and restored habitat and provides outdoor recreational and educational opportunities for more than 30,000 visitors each year. CNC charges only a small program fee to ensure access for everyone. We rely on our volunteers, along with individual and corporate friends and donors to stay open 361 days each year.

As a private, non-profit organization, Carpenter Nature Center heavily relies on donations from generous supporters. Your financial contribution helps keep our trails open and available to the public, allows us to continue our education and habitat work, and supports the physical and mental health of the community.
