Berks Nature Center

Home to Berks Nature’s headquarters, The Nature Place sits among 100 acres in Reading’s Angelica Park. The building and beautiful grounds are open to the public. Take a stroll over the wetland boardwalk and explore the dog-friendly trail network. Let the kiddos run free with their imagination in our very unique Nature Play Zone. Tour our beautiful pollinator garden, rain gardens and large teaching garden. Then retreat inside for a tour of the green features of the building – designed to achieve LEED Silver status by the US Green Building Council.  Visit our live indoor observation beehive, turtles, fish and best of all, our Nature Place Store featuring unique gift ideas for the nature lovers in your life!

The Nature Place is also home to a new Berks Nature Preschool, and comes alive during the summer months for Eco-Camp day camp.  Be sure to visit us to see what The Nature Place can offer you!
