WARREN E. FOX NATURE CENTER

W. E. Fox Nature CenterThe Warren E. Fox Nature Center is the headquarters for environmental education in Atlantic County. Located in Atlantic County Park in Estell Manor on Route 50, the Nature Center was named in honor of Warren E. Fox, an active environmentalist who contributed thousands of hours to a better understanding of the New Jersey Pinelands. The Nature Center was built in 1984 using an architectural design that incorporates passive solar heating. There are offices, an auditorium for class and public lectures, an employee kitchen, public bathroom facilities and a live animal display area. Many environmental programs are held here and out on the trails. Also held in the Nature Center are craft classes and various group meetings. If you've got a question, get in touch with us. We'll be happy to help you out. Also, let us know if you have any unusual sightings.

Stop into the Nature Center - it is full of information in the form of displays, brochures, and our dedicated staff. We have a display of trees and their leaves, for those of you that are stuck on that school project. There are stuffed animals, so you can see what a certain animal really looks like. We have artifacts from Native Americans, the Glassworks and the Bethlehem Loading Company (CLICK HERE to see our History Page). If you don't see it in our Nature Center, just ask. Our Naturalists have an extensive knowledge of the natural world. Besides, if they don't know, they have a large library in which to search.

To find out what kind of environmental programs we offer, go to the Calendar of Events section of this Website. It is updated monthly, so keep an eye out. Our programs change with the seasons.
