Waterman Conservation Education Center
Waterman Conservation Education Center is a private, non-profit nature center that provides environmental educational and outdoor recreational opportunites for people of all ages. We feature 4 miles of hiking trails that wind their way around woodlands, meadows, a small stream and a gorge. The museum houses numerous exhibits, classrooms and a nature store. Waterman Center owns three other properties, all suitable for hiking: Brick Pond Wetland Preserve, Hiawatha Island (in the Susquehanna River) and Riverfront Park, the IBM Glen - an Educational Preserve, and Waterman Center maintains a trail system at the Apalachin Marsh.
Your donations help:
Your funds will help us raise money for rebuilding the walkways at Brick Pond in Owego, NY. Before the floods of 2005 and 2006, two large bridges enabled people to walk around the preserve. The first bridge spanned the length of the pond and featured a teaching platform. The second bridge was a 300 foot wooden elevated walkway. All was ruined in the flood and nothing is salvageable. This state protected wetland is a classroom to many school children throughout the year. People of all ages are welcome to enjoy the preserve and watch the many species of waterfowl, beavers and other wildlife. It is known as one of the best birding sites in New York State.
There are many ways you can get involved.
