Explore inside the Nature Center for a welcoming and up close look at still life exhibits and a host of living reptiles and amphibians, including a 900 gallon aquarium with fish you would find in your local lakes and rivers! Looking to connect more with the outdoors? Set out for a nature walk, enjoy the adjoining park, and stroll along the river for views that many won’t believe you can find in a bustling city like Sterling Heights. Exploring this unique city gem is free during open visitor hours, and if you find yourself wanting more, there are a variety of great low cost programs offered for people of all ages. Stop on by for a visit or two. Either way, staff will be ready to greet you!
