|WARREN E. FOX NATURE CENTER
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.
