Back to Nature in Mattoon
Enjoy the simpler things in life this spring – the sounds of birds chirping, peaceful trail walks in search of new plant life and even glimpses of newborn fawns – at the Douglas Hart Nature Center in Mattoon. [Watch a video of the nature center by clicking here.]
Spring is a wonderful time to visit, according to the center’s staff, although educational programs and special events run year-round.
The center, funded through grants and private support, was established in the late 1960s. Over the years, more than 65 acres of land have been transformed into prairie, forest and wetlands habitats.
