Nature Center at Clark Reservation State Park

Park visitors are encouraged to stop by the Nature Center, which is operated by the Friends of Clark Reservation. There, visitors will learn more about the natural history of the park through fossil and wildlife exhibits. The Center contains a small library of field guides and information on the flora, fauna, and geology of Clark Reservation, including exhibits of birds, mammals, insects, and fossils.

The Nature Center is open Memorial weekend through Labor Day.  The Center is staffed by volunteers during the week from 11 am to 3 pm.  A naturalist will be available from 10 am to 3 pm during weekends and holidays during the season.
