Welcome to the
Chadwick Lewis Nature Center!
River Ridge Environmental Education Program at the John Knox Center houses over 25 different species of animals in the Chadwick Lewis Nature Center. Children and adults from all over the southeastern United States get to be upclose and personal with these amazing creatures. In the Nature Center, people see and hear about each animal's unique place on this earth and characteristics that help it to survive in the wild. Our hands-on approach to learning helps teach each person how to be a good steward of the environment.
