Lyman Woods Nature Center & Preserve
Lyman Woods Nature Center & Preserve is home to the William F. Sherman, Jr. Interpretive Center, 135 acres of old and second-growth oak woods, meadow and marsh featuring more than 2.5 miles of marked hiking trails.
Discover native landscaping, a butterfly garden, and rain gardens outside the building. Don’t forget to look up and spot native prairie plants growing on the roof! Inside the William F. Sherman, Jr. Interpretive Center you will find changing exhibits and activities, programs, restrooms, drinking fountains and first aid. Bring a lunch or snack to enjoy at our outdoor picnic area. Feel free to ask questions of our talented naturalist staff about any plants or animals that you see.
Lyman Woods is home to an educational bee apiary and offers a range of beekeeping courses. Honey from Lyman Woods apiary will be available for sale in the fall on a first-come, first-served basis. As well as an educational resource, honey bees are also an essential part of food production – bees are responsible for pollinating about one-third of our food that sustains us.
Each season, Lyman Woods offers educational programs for all ages—including summer camps for children ages 0-12. Birthday parties are also available featuring 13 nature-based themes to choose from!
