  • Beech Creek is the ideal place to work on Scout badges and service projects.

  • The Butterfly House and Caterpillar Nursery are perfect for learning about insects.  Our volunteer "Flight" attendants are very knowledgeable and love sharing what they know.

  • The Amazing Garden provides insightful, interactive learning experiences about plants and animals.

  • Our many trails offer an extensive opportunity for plant identification, habitat exploring, tracking and yes, we can always use help clearing invasive plant species.

  • Guided learning experiences (using Beech Creek Gardens education staff) need to be scheduled in advance - see below.
