History:

Beginning in 2003, the school district began to develop this outdoor area with the vision that the Nature Center would be an oasis for our community and an outdoor classroom for our students. The center features a pond, docks, bridges, boardwalks and trail system.

To preserve and maintain this area, the district has continued to partner with conservation experts, community volunteers, and district staff to form a committee to provide guidance and support in using this natural resource.

Eagle Scout

We are appreciative to the Boy Scouts of America, who have participated in the development of the Nature Center as part of ongoing Eagle Scout projects, and we continue to look for ways to partner with individuals and community groups.

Anyone interested in partnering or donating should contact Mrs. Linda Howell at lhowell@spencerportschools.org for more information.

In addition, be sure to send us pictures from your visits to the Nature Center at the email address above, and we will add them here on our website.

Mission:
The Nature Center Committee is dedicated to providing guidance for a high quality outdoor educational classroom to benefit the Spencerport School District and community. We are committed to developing the procedures, guidelines, resources, and regulations needed to preserve the Nature Center as a safe and accessible instructional option. Our goal is to maintain and sustain the Nature Center in its natural setting.
