The Nurture Nature Center (NNC) is a science-based organization that combines science, art, and community dialogue to get people talking and thinking critically about environmental issues in their communities. NNC, which has been doing community programming since 2008, opened its science theater to the public in November of 2011. The opening coincided with a major building renovation and the installation of its premiere exhibit, Science on a Sphere , a giant animated globe that displays earth and planetary science on a spherical screen. NNC received its SOS through a competitive grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In keeping with its mission, NNC currently hosts 1) monthly film screenings, Family Saturdays, and brown bag lunch series; 2) weekly programming on its Science on a Sphere exhibit; 3) quarterly artist receptions in its gallery space; and 4) community events with other area non-profits.
