The Harriet Alexander Nature Center is an oasis nestled within the borders of Roseville’s Central Park. On the grounds there is a boardwalk and trails that circulate through 52 acres of marsh, prairie and forest habitats. Come explore the marsh on the newer boardwalk sections which are linked to the older sections, making for a nice long double loop. During your visit to HANC you might find migrating songbirds, towering prairie grasses, rows of painted turtles, or cottontail rabbits.
Exhibits and displays inside the interpretive center offer a close-up chance to study plant and animal life. The indoor honeybee observation hive, touch & see area, live animals, and interactive displays allow visitors many opportunities to discover the natural world through hands-on experiences. Marvel at the nearly life-size indoor tree feature and explore its many nooks and crannies filled with surprises! Peruse the well-tended library with field guides, resource books and story books for your use while visiting the building.
