Welcome to Woldumar Nature Center

Experience the thrill of scientific discovery outdoors.

Our Mission:
To educate people about the natural environment.

Each year, Woldumar Nature Center - a non-profit environmental education organization - attracts almost 25,000visitors from across mid-Michigan.
Situated along the Grand River with 1.25 miles of shoreline, Woldumar represents one of the most diverse ecosystems in the region. More than 5 miles of trails await you on 178 acres of woodland, prairie, river-side and pine forest! Hike or ski anytime between dawn and dusk. View Trail Map

We offer numerous outreach and on-site Environmental Education programs for children as well as adults.
