Churchville Nature Center
Churchville Nature Center is a non-profit environmental education center of the Bucks County Department of Parks & Recreation. We are located on a 65 acre nature preserve adjacent to the Churchville Reservoir. This website will guide you through who we are and help you plan your next visit with us!
🦋See you soon!
We are Open!
The visitor center has re-opened to the general public for normal business hours. Trails, playground, gardens and parking lots are all open sun-up to sun-down. We are running limited programming including summer camps and campfires. No Lenape Village programming until further notice. Butterfly House tentatively re-opening in August 2020.
Please continue to follow all state and federal guidelines as well as our preserve rules when visiting us. A face mask will be required when entering the visitor center. The County of Bucks asks that you respect other visitors and remain 6ft apart from them at all times. We will also be limiting the number of folks in the building so please have patience when visiting. The back classrooms, wet-lab and community room will be closed due to ongoing camps.
Stay safe, happy and healthy,
The CNC Staff & Friends
