The Nature Place

*WINTER WEATHER ALERT – Your safety is important to us when you come visit The Nature Place! Please be cautious on icy/snowy mornings when walking down our path. We salt our paths in the morning but we advise walking in the grass when possible! Alvernia University is in charge of the parking lot clearing and when they are not in session, the parking area may be challenging. Berks Nature also tries to balance respect for the water quality of Angelica Creek with safe conditions to the building and keep our salt pollution to a minimum.

Home to Berks Nature’s headquarters, Eco-Camp, and a new Nature Preschool, the Nature Place sits among nearly 100-acres in Reading’s Angelica Creek Park. Take a stroll through the dog-friendly wetland trails. Get your hands dirty in our teaching and demonstration gardens. Let the kiddos run free with their imaginations in our Nature Play Zone. Then retreat inside our lobby and store for one of our “Saturdays at the Nature Place” programs – or a tour of the green features of our LEED-Gold building. The Nature Place makes a perfect venue for your next business event or birthday party.
