Brookside Nature Center
Since 1961, Brookside Nature Center has engaged visitors in fun and meaningful ways, connecting to both the natural and cultural resources of Montgomery County. Nestled within 536-acre Wheaton Regional Park, the nature center provides interpretation of the surrounding ecosystems - forest, pond, stream and meadow. The nature center building is accessible to all and features live animal exhibits (reptiles/amphibians/fish), the Children's Discovery Room, observation bee hive, and wildlife exhibits. On the facility grounds, discover a wooded nature play area, native plant gardens, accessible interpretive boardwalks, 1870s pioneer cabin, and miles of hiking trails.
