Activity Overview

Once a 100 acre farm in Canton that was later donated to the State Of Connecticut, this land was lovingly transformed into a wildlife sanctuary and outdoor classroom. The Nature Center is complete with over 5 acres of land dedicated to Nature Trails and a fascinating Birds of Prey Exhibit.

Things to Do

  • Explore the Nature Center and learn about land, wildlife and animals. The Nature Center offers a plethora of special classes and events and programs for all ages. Some of these include: School Groups sessions, Homeschooling Classes, Discovery Days for preschoolers, School Vacations and Summer programs, birthday parties and scouting events.
  • Go hiking on the various walking trails and kids can participate in a scavenger hunt.
  • Have a picnic lunch
  • Visit the Gift Shop

Roaring Brook Nature Center Insider Tips

  • I recommend packing a lunch or a snack to enjoy in one of the picnic areas located throughout the park.
  • The interior of the Nature Center building is somewhat tight and it may be difficult to maneuver a stroller throughout the building. You can certainly use on some of the walking trails, however.
  • The Nature Center contains both real and faux animals for viewing and educating.
  • There are trails to explore: The Butterfly Trail and the Red Trail are best for the littlest ones, The Butterfly trail is much more stroller accessible than the latter.
  • Visit the gift shop to pay for your admission and pick up a scavenger hunt map for children. If the find three items along the scavenger hunt trail, they can receive a small prize.
