What is the Louisville Nature Center?

A truly unique community resource, the Louisville Nature Center offers wonderful opportunities for nature study and recreation--right in the heart of the city!

Bring a lunch and relax at our picnic tables or under the covered gazebo.

Among our unique features are: a native wildflower garden and pond, gardens that attract seasonal butterflies, hiking trails through the Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, a one-of-a-kind bird blind, wildlife exhibits, Beargrass Creek watershed exhibit, a meeting room, a nature gift shop, and our library--a great place to do research and spend some time indoors when the weather is too hot, too cold or rainy to study nature outside.

Our mission is to provide nature education and encourage stewardship in an urban forest. We look forward to your visit!
