Description

The Fern Hollow Nature Center is a place where individuals, groups and families can come to enjoy the outdoors. It is also the gateway to the area park system. Educational programs are both organized and spontaneous and are aimed at helping children and adults understand and appreciate the environment.

The Nature Center welcomes the public and is an accessible facility. There is an indoor assembly area which will accommodate 40 people, a catering kitchen and two restrooms. Immediately adjacent to the Center is a small parking area. Outdoors, there is a plateau --- an ideal place for camping, football, kite flying or star gazing. There is a sloping field with paths for walking, sledding, bird watching and observing insects.

Within a short distance, is the vast Sewickley Heights Borough Park and various creeks, such as Fern Hollow and Little Sewickley Creek.
