Woldumar Nature Center sits on 178 acres of woodland, prairie and wetland terrains, with over a mile of shoreline on the Grand River. Woldumar’s location provides us with opportunities to engage in environmental education, preservation and conservation efforts available to the Greater Lansing area. Walk on our trails and observe the new and exciting differences during each season of the year. Each family member can find something of interest here!

Experience diverse ecosystems found at Woldumar Nature Center in one of our scheduled programs. Explore possibilities for conservation and preservation as you enjoy the out-of-doors - including community events for all, week-long camp programs, and school field trips. Join our talented crew of staff and volunteers as they lead you and your children on a fun-filled adventure at Woldumar Nature Center.
