Connecting People With Nature

Nature At The Confluence is a new urban environmental center that opened in 2017. We invite you to stop in for a visit to discover nature right in the middle of an urban area! We’re located on property surrounded by the Rock River, Turtle Creek and Kelly Creek, and you’ll find scenic beauty during every season. The campus offers a 5-acre prairie restoration, learning gardens, pollinator gardens and we have programs throughout the year for all ages and interests! Visit our calendar to see all we have to offer and come see us soon!

Please note that our grounds are always open for you to enjoy, but many of our programs are cancelled at least through June due to COVID-19.
