Description:

Once a grist mill, the Nature Center now hosts environmental programs, trips & nature walks. Named for the historic water-powered grist mill on site, Abbott’s Mill Nature Center features trails for self-guided walks along the 313-acre Milford Millponds Nature Preserve. Pick up a map at the Center, where you can also see live reptiles & taxidermy displays. Abbott’s Mill hosts kids & family nature programs.

KIDBIT: Read - a book and settle into one the Kids' Corner's bean bag chairs in the Nature Center.

FAMILY MUSTS: Duck inside the center for a closer look at what you’ll find on the trails: a demo garden, rain gardens and bird feeding stations; live animal exhibits with local fish, frogs and turtles; a freshwater touch tank; and a kids’ corner with nature-themed books, puzzles and stuffed animals.
