The Indian Creek Nature Center aims to promote a sustainable future by encouraging responsible interactions with nature and providing environmental education to the public. The Center is situated on 210 acres of diverse land, including prairie, forest, and wetlands, which visitors can use to go hiking, bird watching, cross-country skiing and fishing.
A number of public programs are offered, including beekeeping classes, free nature walks for preschoolers and their parents, and workshops that teach the basics of raising chickens in an urban setting. Children can attend summer nature camps, which are offered in both four-day and single-day sessions.
