Carpenter Nature Center

Nestled at the confluence of the St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers near Hastings, and located only thirty minutes from the metro, Carpenter St. Croix Valley Nature Center provides a unique opportunity to learn and explore the outdoors. Carpenter Nature Center’s primary goal is to connect people of all ages with nature. We offer environmental education for all learning levels with programs throughout the year. Whether you’re a school teacher looking for a field trip designed to enhance classroom studies, a parent interested in summer programming for your child, an adult looking to connect with others who share your interests, a scout leader searching for badge programming, or a community leader who wants the flexibility and convenience of an outreach presentation, we can meet your programming needs!
