The Nature Place is your space, year-round, rain or shine.

Our Environmental Education Program engages students from the La Crosse School District and surrounding schools in meaningful, hands-on outdoor experiences that support and enrich students and teachers in their science curricula.

Our environmental education programs, community programs, community science, and land stewardship engage children, families, and adults in meaningful experiences to connect, explore, and inspire.

Our facility rental is available to community members seeking a space to celebrate life’s most important events and doubles as a unique way to support what we do.

We are that space to meet up with friends before you hit the trails. To stay inside sipping a cup of coffee enjoying the view through towering windows. To connect with the land wandering through native gardens around the facility. Or just that space that has nice restrooms in the park when you need them. Whatever it is, we are here for you.
