Explore the Great Outdoor at the Carrie Murray Nature Center

Just because there is a chill in the air doesn’t mean you can’t get outside! One perfect place to enjoy a mild winter day near The Berkleigh is the Carrie Murray Nature Center! This season they’re offering outdoor immersive learning experiences, as the nature center doors are still closed due to COVID-19. With the nature center’s outdoor discovery classes, children will build fine motor skills through fun nature-themed projects, hiking, and more. As a family you can even explore the trails that surround the nature center in Leakin Park. There’s actually a 15-mile paved trail perfect for winter exploration.

Additionally, if you do want a peek inside the nature center exhibits you can visit their website and sign up for a virtual visit where a staff member will take you on a VIP tour of the facility and exhibits from home.
