We're Open All Year!
There is always something new to do at the Kalamazoo Nature Center with featured programs every month for kids and adults. There is a family program every Sunday at 2 pm and special events are held throughout the year. Check out the Calendar for a full listing of programs and events.
The award winning Nature Up Close exhibits show you a new perspective on the world around you. Of course, the most special feature of all are the 14+ miles of hiking trails that wind through some of the most special habitats in Michigan. Visit our Trails!
Our nationally recognized Certified Interpretive Hosts are here to help you make the most of your visit to the Kalamazoo Nature Center. Whether you are greeted at the Gatehouse or inside the Interpretive Center, our hosts can tell you everything you need to know about visiting KNC.
