about Powdermill Nature Reserve:
Powdermill Nature Reserve is used by scientists to monitor and study changes in the local ecology and wildlife populations. It has served as a refuge for many plants and animals now becoming increasingly rare in the region as their habitats are destroyed.
Children can participate in week-long nature programs during the summer. Nature programs are offered throughout the year and school field trips, civic programs, and teacher workshops are conducted regularly.
