We love kids (of all ages) to experience nature! However, Wickiup Hill Learning Center is a busy place, especially in the summer, with scheduled filed trips and summer camps happening almost every day.

Trip Tips

  • Wickiup Hill is a "carry in, carry out" facility.  Please bring a trash bag with you to bring your garbage back with you.
  • All wildlife are protected by law. No animal should be moved, harassed or removed from the property. Please observe at an appropriate distance.
  • Trails are marked and many have educational signage along the way. Maps are also available inside.

Self-Guided Policy

To better accommodate groups of 10 or more guests, we ask that you contact the Wickiup Hill conservation education team to plan your self-guided field trip indoors and/or outdoors. All organized groups of 10 or more will need to schedule their visit in advance, so we can be sure there are no conflicts with other large groups and events.
