Our hearts go out to all who are struggling to find a hand-hold during this singular time. We are with you in spirit. We encourage everyone to seek mental, spiritual and physical renewal in nature – in whatever way you can. The natural world remains a wonderful place to recharge and to delight in discovery.

CREA is working to offer new ways to help you spend time in nature. We’ve posted at-home nature-based activities.

As always, we are grateful for your continued engagement and support.

The Cathance River Nature Preserve is CLOSED and the CREA Ecology Center will not host regular Sunday open house hours until further notice. We hope to be back soon! See our Visit page for more information.

We continue to evaluate whether we can safely run summer camp this year. For more information, see our Summer Camp page
