Indian Creek Nature Center
6665 Otis Road SE Cedar Rapids, IA 52403

Indian Creek Nature Center is a private, non-profit nature center providing environmental education for all ages that is funded by memberships, income from programs, donations, and grants. The 210 acres with four miles of trails provide woodlands, prairies, wetlands and riparian forests for a unique outdoor classroom. The Nature Center staff and volunteers provide leadership for a variety of learning experiences.

The interpretive center, a remodeled 1932 dairy barn, houses exhibits, an auditorium, offices, gift shop and restrooms. The grounds contain a Vermont-style maple sugar house, gardens, ponds, bee hives, bat houses, a bluebird trail and more. Picnic tables are available for your use.

The Sense of Wonder Trail, located right next to the barn, is a great child and family-friendly trail filled with fun activity stops. The Sense of Wonder Trail Guide for Parents maps out a playscape designed for children and adults to explore, discover, daydream, and play outdoors together as they connect with our earth. Stop in at the front desk to pick up a guide.

The center also offers a variety of summer nature camps and is available for nature themed birthday party events.
