Carroll County Conservation District Nature Center
1902 Easterday Rd. Hwy 36

The Carroll County Conservation District Nature Center is tucked away in the beautiful area known as Camp Kysoc in Carrollton Kentucky. It is operated by the Fiscal Court and is loved by the community. The Center is surrounded by old growth trees and unique plants and animals. In addition to the center there are numerous trails that meander through a canopy of oak, maple, hickory, ironwood, pawpaw, sassafras, walnut, redbud and beech trees among others. The trails lead to a lake stocked with blue gill aplenty. It is a favorite haunt of birdwatchers and walkers.

The Center opened in the spring of 2021. It offers educational opportunities for school groups and individual visitors. The building houses a variety of displays and areas that promote experiences that include an aquatics room, a room about things that fly, another area with trees and mammals. An observatory room allows visitors to see a wealth of birds, chipmunks and squirrels gathered around feeders and a water source. Plans are to host workshops, environmental gatherings and presenters of crafts and artists. The nature center has  a variety of bee hives, inside and outside to promote the importance of the mighty pollinators.

Overall the goal is to promote environmental education and thus stewardship and responsibility of our fragile earth.
