Mission The mission of Eden Place Nature Center is as follows:

• Provide an outdoor classroom for children with hands on activities to enhance their learning experiences

• Provide healthy and enriching family activities for the community

• Provide the community with access to organic, healthy produce grown in the Eden Place community garden and at other local farms

• Preserve native biodiversity through the active conservation and maintenance of distinct ecological systems such as the wetland, prairie, and woodland on the Eden Place site

• Provide community members with access to regional and state-wide natural areas through community trips

Eden Place Nature Center is a nature oasis in the city for individuals who do not have easy access to local natural areas and biodiversity, and we focus on helping connect community members with nature through our educational programming. We have developed relationships with local schools, daycare centers, community-based organizations, and environmental organizations in order to implement strong educational programming for young people in the local neighborhood and throughout the city. We work to help these young people develop a love for nature and an interest in pursuing careers related to the environment.
