We're taking kids to an amazing new place.It's called outside.

Time spent outside with nature goes a long way toward creating a happy, healthy childhood. So we're giving kids a place they can call their own. Literally.

This land is your land. So get a deed.

Our goal is to provide a deed to a piece of our park to every elementary, middle school and high school student in Indiana.

Moser Park Nature Center

Moser Park Nature Center is located by the trail head of the River Greenway and the Moser Park's pond. The building was originally built as a warming station for ice skating. It has been a nature center for over six years and expected to grow grander every year. The center has access to a paved walking path which is part of the River Greenway, wooded trails in the wetland area, and a native garden.
 
Moser Park Nature Center offers free outdoor educational programs for pre-k to 5th grade. One of their special features is pond dipping and frog life. They often have guest speakers, special programs, field trips, and classroom visits.
 
Their goal is to offer free educational programs about Indiana's wildlife, promote mental and physical good health, and to build a strong connection with the community.
 
Moser Park Nature center is open during the spring, summer, and fall months. The center is closed for the winter (Mid October-March).
