Engage & Explore
At BCNC, we have multiple outlets to explore and engage up-close-and-personal with nature. We are nestled on over 50 acres of mixed hardwood forest with trails that also connect to the adjoining city-owned Cochran Mill Park. You will find a variety of ecosystems that include a host of interesting flora and fauna, unique geological features such as creeks, exposed granite outcrops, and even a pond beside our creek. Native and non-native organisms reside at the Center including various reptiles, birds of prey, arthropods, and bats. Our staff and volunteers are passionate and dedicated to bringing accessible, meaningful environmental education to our local community.
