Connecting People With Nature

Nature At The Confluence invites you to stop in for a visit to discover nature just steps from the city.  We’re located on about 80 acres 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, trails, learning gardens, pollinator gardens and programs are held throughout the year for all ages and interests! Visit our calendar to see all we have to offer and come see us soon!
