Roaring Brook Nature Center is in the midst of a “Building Roaring Brook’s Future” capital campaign that would expand its footprint approximately 32 percent. The improvements include a greatly expanded front entrance area complete with kiosk and garden, an extended back porch and outdoor classroom area, a new indoor classroom that will showcase the center’s longhouse, a wildlife rehabilitation clinic, a sun-filled showcase turtle pond and new raptor enclosures. Additionally the flow between all areas would be greatly enhanced. 

“It will be better for the animals, better for the public and better for the staff,” said Jay Kaplan, director at Roaring Brook Nature Center.
