The mission of Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center is to educate the public about humankind’s influence on DuPage County’s natural ecosystems and the inter-relationships with the global environment. More than 35,000 school children visit Fullersburg Woods each year to learn about the local natural environment and how they can improve conditions for future generations. Visitor Center and Robert H. Kelly Community Resource Center – The newly remodeled Fullersburg Woods Visitor Center is a modern, interactive facility that provides an introduction to the local environment. Guests can explore the world of Salt Creek and its inhabitants, discover how to recognize resident bird species, and learn how to identify wild animal tracks. Visitors can examine the reconstructed remains of a 13,000-year-old woolly mammoth to learn about DuPage County’s natural history or can use microscopes and spotting scopes to examine some of the creatures that call the forest preserves home today with program information as well as answers to nature-related questions.
