Nature Center

In 2011, we moved into the Winifred W. Haggart Nature Center. The means to build the Nature Center was made possible by a bequest from the late Winifred Watkins Haggart, a friend of Floracliff’s founder, Dr. Mary Wharton. Thanks to a generous grant from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, the nature center was equipped with a solar energy system in 2017. The solar panels supply most of our energy needs.

The Nature Center provides a visitor’s center, classroom, meeting room, library, office space, restroom facilities, and a kitchenette.

Available amenities for rentals:

  • Multi-purpose room (725 sq. ft.) with counter space and a sink
  • Kitchenette with sink, counter space, microwave, and refrigerator
  • Restrooms
  • 8 tables (2.5’ x 5’) and 35 chairs
  • Projector

Small groups may rent the Nature Center for approved events Monday – Friday.

For additional information or questions about the use of the center, please email Beverly James at
