The Nature Center
Uniting people and nature through shared adventures in the natural world.

Get out and explore at GCV&M!

The Nature Center at Genesee Country Village & Museum is a fantastic place to explore the flora and fauna of the Genesee Valley Region. Take a hike on a nature trail, learn from a resident naturalist, meet animals up close and personal, and so much more.

The Nature Center is Evolving!

You can help us create new exhibits and interactive stations, deepen and develop nature-based programming, and connect with all areas of the Museum. Join the Evolution by visiting often, sharing your experiences and feedback with Nature Center staff, and donating today (please indicate NC Renovation in the honoree line of your donation).

Nature Trails

The grounds of Genesee Country Village & Museum encompass hundreds of acres of woodlands, meadows, old fields, geologic formations, ponds, and streams. With five miles of themed nature trails and 175 acres of wildlife habitat, the grounds are open year-round for visitors to explore natural history and the area’s flora and fauna.

The Sugar House

Did you know? Part of the Nature Center at GCV&M is a working sugar house, where sap is collected from the Sugar Bush on our grounds and turned into real NY maple syrup!
