Nature at The Confluence is an initiative to transform the area of land where Turtle Creek meets the Rock River into a community space that celebrates the natural and historical significance of the land.

The development includes a 2200 square foot indoor Nature Learning Center, a 1500 square foot Outdoor Learning Center, and a 35 foot outdoor fireplace.

Nature-based programs will be offered throughout the year. There also will be opportunities for children, adults, community groups, schools, and businesses to get involved with volunteer and learning projects through Nature At The Confluence’s Stream Team and Green Team programs.

Wednesday Walkabout- Hit the gravel-packed trails each week for the Wednesday Walkabout at the Confluence Campus, 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. This free program encourages people to get outdoors and get active walking the trail loops. Participants can come when they choose and walk as far as they like. All ages are encouraged to come and dogs on leashes are allowed. Stop in the Learning Center afterwards for free coffee and water. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. No registration needed.
