Touch a turtle…feed a toad…see a snake…or just take in the “wild” sights of The Nature Zone. The Nature Zone is an environmental education center that offers a world of fun and excitement for all ages!

The Nature Zone is excited to be here in our new home on the first floor of  the beautiful, newly-renovated historic Miller Center! We have a new look, with displays focused on our local watershed, new homes for the Nature Zone animals, plus new Discovery Drawers for visitors to explore. We are FREE and open to the public. 

Here are some happenings and activities you can experience at the Nature Zone:

  • Animal Feedings
  • Discovery Drawers
  • Exhibits about Central VA Ecosystem
  • Q&A with Naturalists
  • Classes & Camps
