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.  In 2017, the nature center was equipped with a solar energy system that supplies most of our energy needs.

The 2040-square-foot 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 educational displays, counter space, and a sink
  • Kitchenette with sink, counter space, microwave, and refrigerator
  • Restrooms
  • 8 tables (2.5’ x 5’) and 35 chairs
  • Projector and screen

Small groups may use the Nature Center for approved events Monday – Friday. Please review our Facility Use Policy before making a reservation.

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