When visitors walk into Marsh Haven Nature Center, they learn we are a non-profit nature center that receives no state or federal funding. We are proud to say that this is a volunteer supported center that is able to operate because of our strong membership, supportive volunteers, and contributions from generous donors. Over and over again we hear from visitors how impressed they are with the quality of the displays and exhibits, the friendly greeters, and the beautiful hiking trails. Credit goes to the many, many dedicated volunteers and donors, who over the years have made all this possible.

We need your help to ensure that Marsh Haven Nature Center continues its work of environmental education, conservation of wildlife and land, and the celebration and appreciation of nature well into the future.
