Nurture Nature Center, located in Easton, Pennsylvania, is a dynamic center for community learning about local environmental risks. NNC is housed in a beautifully renovated, historic, 30,000 sq. foot facility, where the staff uses a blend of science, art and dialogue programs to get the community talking and thinking critically about the local environment.
NNC’s visitor center includes a variety of art and other educational exhibits, including the Science on a Sphere exhibit developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This famed exhibit, which has been installed at 100 science centers and museums around the world, features breath-taking visualizations of earth and space science and is a centerpiece of NNC’s visitor area. NNC uses these art and science exhibits, as well as other forum programs and educational events, to invite local residents and decision-makers into an ongoing dialogue about building community resiliency through environmentally-sound decision-making. NNC’s facility is also used for a variety of community activities, and is available for rental for special events.
