Organization: Hike, Science, Walk
The Discovery Center is a non-profit organization whose goal is to foster a love of nature, an interest in science, and an appreciation of history and the cultural arts in all persons, particularly the young. Since 1985 we have offered a diverse calendar of events for adults, families, and children, and continued our tradition of educational and affordable programs. The Discovery Center is a center without walls, meaning we have no building. This allows us to run programs in varied locations, diverse facilities, public open spaces, and private lands, and makes our programs flexible and innovative. From nature walks, history events, art programs, to events with live animals or birds, these programs appeal to individuals of various ages and interests. We also welcome special groups — such as preschoolers, clubs, or families — and public groups, both large and small. Membership and participation is not limited to Ridgefield, and we encourage people of all neighboring communities to participate in our programs held in different locations.
