The Schuykill Center         Broken link?

Founded in 1965, The Schuylkill Center is one of the first urban environmental education centers in the country. Envisioning an "island of green" where city dwellers could experience and learn about the natural world, sisters Eleanor Houston Smith and Margaret Houston Meigs, along with their families, donated the extensive parcels of farmland and woods that make up the Centerís grounds today. As our founders intended, the Center is used by thousands of people each year to discover, explore, and study nature.

Nice walkable trails for young children and strollers. Small hands-on exhibit area for environmental education. Live enclosed bee hive for observation. Free admission
