About Us

Earthplace is a center for nature discovery and environmental learning whose purpose is to build passion and respect for the natural world. Our programs blend science, nature conservation, and education into pathways for experiencing and learning: for young children we use discovery and fun to build awareness and connection to the outdoors; for school age youth we promote learning through science and understanding of the role humans play in our ecosystems; and for all ages we encourage individual growth and actions that can lead to a more sustainable community.

We have a wide array of assets that include: a 62 acre wildlife sanctuary with a 2-mile connecting trail system; a 19 town water quality monitoring program and state-certified lab; leading early childhood education programs; and many special nature programs and events.
