Nature is truly appreciated at our thirteen-acre savanna and center. People of all ages will enjoy this natural oasis full of native wildflowers, grasses, oak trees, a three-acre pond and trails. Some of the plants and animals that frequent the pond or have been sighted in the savanna include Great Blue Herons, Coyotes, Flying Squirrels, Northern Water Snakes, Red Foxes and Cooper’s Hawks. Emily Oaks is home to all kinds of urban wildlife and is a great place to observe migrating songbirds. Emily Oaks Nature Center provides programs in earth education and outdoor recreation for children, adults, scouts and family groups. Entertaining nature activities are offered year-round. The purpose of Emily Oaks Nature Center is to help people build a sense of relationship with the natural world through feelings and understandings - a relationship that grows to include personal responsibility to the earth.
