Roaring Brook Nature Center

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>The Roaring Brook Nature Center was founded in 1948 by Una Storrs Riddle. The wonderful woodsy grounds provide a great spot to take a hike, learn about Connecticut wildlife or sit quietly and watch a flurry of birds busily eating from one of the many feeders.</p>
<p>But if you want to totally experience the center, you must step inside and check out the exhibits. Here you will see a replica of a real Indian Longhouse, a beaver wetland and other seasonal exhibits reflecting the climate, history and wildlife of Connecticut. Don't miss the small animal room, which houses snakes, frogs and other native animals.  </p> <p>There are several programs available for school groups, scout troops, home schoolers and vacations. Summer camp here is quite popular and so are the nature-inspired birthday parties. The gift shop is a great place to shop for the nature lovers on your list, both young and old.</p>
