At the Ned Smith Center, we believe education is for everyone.
We have developed a series of programs that connect people of all ages with the natural world. Whether it’s watching waterfowl on the Susquehanna River, taking a spring bird walk with expert guides, or enjoying an informative and entertaining lecture, we have an affordable way for you to enjoy nature with your family.
We can’t wait to discover nature with you!
