New Canaan Nature Center
Head to the sugar shack to learn all about this New England tradition. Enjoy a delicious breakfast of syrup over a short stack of flapjacks or waffles. Join naturalists for a hike down Maple Lane to learn tree identification tips, watch a tree tapping demo and a maple sap boil. Than make a maple-themed craft to take home.
Address: 144 Oenoke Ridge New Canaan , CT 06840
The New Canaan Nature Center features diverse habitats, including wet and dry meadows and woodlands, two ponds, dense thickets, an old orchard and a cattail marsh. Two miles of trails criss-cross the site that is one of the six largest tracks of open space in New Canaan. Trails and grounds are open from dawn to dusk and admission is free to the public. In addition to the natural trails, visitors are welcome to enjoy an arboretum and a variety of gardens including the Sally Waters Herb Garden, James L. Crider Memorial Bird and Butterfly Garden, the Swallen Wildflower Garden, and Susan B. Hanson Memorial Naturalists' Garden.
