Visit Woldumar

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!
