Thirty years ago, a group of dedicated Darien citizens founded the Darien Nature Center, under the aegis of the Darien Community Association. With a small staff and many devoted volunteers these early visionaries carried forth the vision of “a center for nature study, field trips, teaching and exhibits.”
Today, the Darien Nature Center boasts a state of the art environmental center designed to foster an educated interest in and respect for the natural world. Both young and old alike enjoy programs, exhibits and special events year-round.
As for the future, our planet is always in need of champions. We sincerely hope that our efforts to educate our citizenry will continue to be appreciated and serve to make us all better stewards of the environment.
