Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center


Whether you're interested in birding, plant identification, plant life, hiking, or nature photography, you'll find a way to enjoy the varied woodland, wetland and meadow habitats of our 300-acre preserve. With eight miles of hiking trails to explore, you can search for bluebirds in the meadow, painted turtles or bullfrogs in the pond, admire our summer wildflower garden or simply enjoy a peaceful walk in the woods.

You can explore the Nature Center's newly renovated indoor natural history exhibits. Woodland, wetland, and meadow displays depict southeastern Connecticut's unique habitats and wildlife, many of which can be found throughout our beautiful sanctuary.

Then get a close-up view of live frogs, fish, turtles, and snakes. Meet magnified centipedes, ants and mushrooms in our Life Under a Log exhibit, experience a "Night in the Meadow" in our intimate theater, or watch bird flight patterns as they stream across our colorful meadow mural.
