The Wildlife Gardens of Churchville Nature Center were created in 1994 by now retired naturalist and garden's name sake, Marlin Corn. This picturesque area is landscaped with plants beneficial to wildlife, not only to help our local wild animal species, but also to provide an area close by for passive recreation. Visitors can enjoy a peaceful setting for contemplation and wildlife viewing without venturing out onto the trail system. Explore a butterfly garden, hummingbird garden, water gardens, native woodland garden, and more. The gardens are designed to be barrier free for people with disabilities. In addition, this area functions as an outdoor classroom. Programs designed to educate the public about the wisdom of landscaping their own property for wildlife are offered throughout the year as well as environmental education programs for school and scout groups. The gardens also serve to provide a method for individuals and organizations to recognize their loved ones, both living and deceased.
