Zion Nature Center

The Zion Nature Center encourages Zionsville and Central Indiana families to take an active role in their native environment through educational and inquiry-based programs and activities.
The Zion Nature Center was founded in 2002 through the dedicated efforts of the Zionsville Parks Department and the Friends of Zion Nature Center. The Zion Nature Center is located on the grounds of Eagle Elementary in Zionsville and adjacent to the Zion Nature Sanctuary. Because of our location there is limited program availability during school days and hours.

Exhibits within the Nature Center focus on local Indiana habitats and wildlife. In addition to exhibits, several educational animals are on display including turtles, snakes, and amphibians.
