Descending through the center’s main “Life of the Forest” exhibit, visitors go from the level of tree canopy to forest floor, both inside and out. Expanses of glass enhance the interpretive experience by offering on-going connections to nature, while also providing natural lighting for the interiors in support of the center’s sustainable mission. Exterior balconies and an inviting terrace off the center’s multipurpose and classroom wing further merge indoor and outdoor space.
“Each time I visit the Robinson Nature Center, I am reminded of the tremendous amount of thought, precision, and hard work that went into creating this true community treasure. We believe that [it] will quickly become a destination for nature lovers up and down the East Coast.”
