Since 1946 the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center has provided the community with experiential science programs that further the Center's mission: to inspire and nurture appreciation of the natural world and foster a personal environmental ethic. DPNC serves 50,000 people each year with environmental science programs and activities. The Nature Center is a private, not-for-profit organization funded by admission fees, memberships and contributions. With 10 miles of trails, live animals, and a natural history museum, the Nature Center provides many rewarding recreational and educational opportunities.
