Zionsville Nature Center

Zion Nature Center

Due to COVID-19, the Zionsville Nature Center is currently closed and programs are held virtually.


The Zionsville 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 Zionsville Nature Center was founded in 2002 through the dedicated efforts of the Zionsville Parks Department and the Friends of Zion Nature Center.

The Zionsville Nature Center recently moved from its location on Eagle Elementary School grounds to the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Library. The Nature Center is located inside the Hoffman Room.

We Are Moving

The animals and exhibits at the Zionsville Nature Center will soon be on the move a few blocks away to the Hussey-Mayfield Public Library. With a shared goal of providing expanded educational opportunities to Zionsville residents, ZNC and HMMPL are partnering to move the nature center to the Olive Hoffman Room located on the first floor of the library. The Zionsville Parks and Recreation Department will continue to secure and maintain the exhibits and animals within the collection and continue to staff the nature center.

The move to HMMPL will provide a temporary location for the nature center as the Town of Zionsville continues to look for more permanent space. The move is expected to take place in the coming weeks but with the library being closed to foot traffic due to COVID-19, an opening date for ZNC is not yet known.
