Welcome visitors,

We now have a convenient drop-box for admission, if you arrive before or after our normal hours to hike our trails (see pricing to the left).

Please note: Our entire grounds (trails and building) will be closed to the public beginning on Friday, April 21 at 3:00pm through noon on Saturday, April 22 for our 5K Run Wild for Wildlife.  We will reopen the trails and building to the public at noon on Saturday, April 22.

Just a friendly reminder, no pets are allowed – they scare our wildlife!

Remember, there is no picking or collecting and it is important to remain on the trails!  Thank you!

Spring Art Exhibit - artist, Patty Brown

Come marvel at Patty Brown’s ‘Color Field Florals’!  Patty has been experimenting with mixing acrylic paints and mediums on wood panel, breaking down natural forms into unexpected geometric shapes, then adding layers of lines to redefine them.

A portion of the sales of Patty’s art will support BNC’s mission of wildlife conservation and remain on exhibit through Sunday, June 18.
