Friends of Hidden Valley Nature Center is excited to that construction of our outdoor classroom has been completed.   
Nature's Pathway inspires creativity, encourages nature-based learning, and builds respect for the natural environment among children 4 to 11 years of age.  It features many interactive areas, including Tunes & Grooves, Riverview Art Village, Construction Zone, Climbing High, Sand Pit, Maureen's Garden, Pump Creek, and Teacher's Corner.

Nature's Pathway is certified by Nature Explore:

As you can imagine, we are very excited to add this outdoor classroom to Hidden Valley’s already excellent educational offerings.
