Nature Playscape

TWC's Nature Playscape is a playground built of natural materials that encourages children to use their imaginations and construct their own play. During Playscape Playdates a TWC naturalist will visit the Playscape for a few hours with additional materials to spark creativity and engage the inquisitive nature of children. The Nature Playscape is open daily, dawn to dusk, and features a large patio for adults to observe children, kids to take a break, and families to congregate. 


TWC Gift Shop

The next time you visit TWC, be sure to stop and discover the unique items in our TWC Gift Shop! We work with numerous local artists who create beautifully crafted and nature-inspired products. With a wide selection of environmentally-friendly, useful and beautiful gifts to choose from, we're sure you will find something appealling.


Wildlife Observation Room

The Wildlife Observation Room is the perfect spot to relax and watch our wildlife come to you! With multiple feeders and a beautiful water feature, there is always someone stopping in for a snack. While you enjoy the sights, you will also enjoy all of nature's sounds through our unique, outdoor microphone system which brings the birdsong indoors. TWC's Bird Club holds occasional events and programs here, so be sure to check our calendar for more details.


Astronomy Building

On the first Friday of every month, the Astronomy Club rolls back the roof on the our observatory for a public star watch. With an assortment of telescopes and a digital planetarium, you can immerse yourself in the wonder and beauty of our night sky.


Animal Ambassadors

Be sure to stop by and visit our Animal Ambassadors. These rescued animals have found a home with the TWC education staff, along with the love and attention of classrooms full of children. You may even be lucky enough to catch them at feeding time!

Shelter & Room Rentals

Unless other arrangements are made, TWC has 3 outdoor picnic pavilions which are available on a first come first serve basis. We also rent our conference room and classrooms for many different events. Please contact us for information, pricing, and availability.
