Land & Creek Legacy Project

At Indian Creek Nature Center, we are always innovating and looking to the future.

We recently reached a HUGE milestone by achieving Living Building Challenge Petal Certification, making Amazing Space one of only 31 buildings in the world to do so. This is huge news and puts us on the global stage for sustainable design. However, we never sit still.

Our next big project is the Land & Creek Legacy Project, which will fund two major initiatives:

The purchase and protection of 26.6 acres of land adjoining Věčný Woods to the north, which will:

    • Protect picturesque woodlands and wildlife, including migrating warblers, rare yellow racer snakes, ornate box turtles, bobcats, hawks and more
    • Prevent development that would impact habitat and result in significant erosion of Věčný Woods
    • Expand the Nature Center’s property to 500.57 acres

The creation of the Indian Creek Exhibit, which will:

    • “Flow” through our exhibit hall and demonstrate the magic beneath Indian Creek’s surface
    • Share the story of Indian Creek’s flora & fauna throughout the seasons, including a variety of native species such as frogs, fish, turtles, otter, beaver, birds and more
    • Provide an opportunity for all ages and abilities to learn about Indian Creek and inform future generations about water & its impact on our daily lives

Both projects engage and excite people in learning about the outdoors and help fulfill the mission of the Nature Center to create a more sustainable future through environmental education, leadership in land protection and restoration and responsible interaction with nature.
