Although the Whitehouse Nature Center encourages all to participate in its educational and passive recreational offerings, certain activities detract from its intended purpose and mission.
The following activities are not permitted in the Center:
- Horseback riding
- Unleashed dogs
- Alcoholic beverages
- Picking of plants
- Removal of any natural objects (living or not)
- Motorized vehicles of any type
Team running is discouraged due to the disruption to the wildlife and quiet setting.
Remember, the Nature Center is your place to enjoy, not destroy; to linger, not litter. Thank you!
Please see the Hours page for trail and Visitor Center hours of operation.
