Nature centers make it possible for people to see how animals interact with their environments and for animals to see how people interact with their weird, hairless babies. Witness the wonders of nature with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options

An individual membership includes enrollment in the center’s Passport Program and the American Horticultural Society, which grant access to more than 500 participating science museums and botanical gardens throughout the world. Members also receive free or discounted admission to Great Valley Nature Center’s programs, as well as newsletters, early registration for summer camps, and access to members-only events. A Goldenseal membership extends all the above privileges to all family members, includes special recognition in the center’s annual report and Oak Log newsletter, and grants families a special membership gift.
Great Valley Nature Center
Just a short walk from the colonial-era fieldstone barn, a sea of green sprouts up around a small pond. Inside this self-sustained ecosystem, turtles leisurely perch on fallen tree limbs that float atop the cool water. Scenes like this are common at Great Valley Nature Center, which stretches 10.5 verdant acres across streams, ponds, wetlands, fields, and woodland habitats. The center fosters an awareness of the land through educational programs for all ages, including kayaking trips, geocaching adventures, or Owl Prowl dinner expeditions. Along with enjoying access to 500 partner museums and gardens throughout the world, members can tour a replica Native American Lenape village, or visit raptors on the mend at the Bird of Prey center. The center’s wildflower garden blooms yellow and white in the spring, and its maple-sugar house preserves the artisanal technique of boiling down flannel shirts from sweet-smelling lumberjacks.
