Annett Nature Center

The Annett Nature Center (ANC), opened in 1997, sits in the 160 acres, ANC Park. The ANC rests on a hillside above a six-acre pond and a ten-acre wetland and is adjacent to Lake Ahquabi State Park. The nature center has three levels containing interpretive exhibits, classrooms, WCCB administrative offices and a community room. The ANC serves as the hub for conservation education programs and as the focal point for many school field trips and summer nature day camps. See our Education Page for more information.

Features include miles of trails, prairie plantings, a butterfly garden, a wildlife viewing blind, an observation tower, fishing, a small reading/bird watching room, a full kitchen, a classroom, large deck, interactive displays, and a small collection of local species of live animals. Built-in 2013 and dedicated in 2014, the Lester Davison Memorial Pavilion added a large outdoor facility to the ANC Park.  The Annett Nature Center and Lester Davidson Memorial Pavilion are available for private rentals as the WCCB’s schedule allows.
