Facility Overview


The Nature Center is located at 1215 Inspiration Parkway South, near St. Croix Preparatory school, in the residential neighborhood "Inspiration." The Nature Center is situated within this conservation development, which promotes a native prairie landscape and maximizes community open space.

The building may be reserved year-round for small gatherings, meetings, or educational workshops for up to 40 persons. A limited number of parking stalls are located in the lot adjacent to the building, supplemented by nearby on-street parking. For this reason, carpooling or using alternative transportation methods to the site are strongly encouraged.

Public hiking trails and paths within the native prairie surround the Nature Center, which also connect the building to the city park Barker’s Alps, equipped with additional parking and active recreation areas.
