Capen Hill has 86 acres of diversified habitats. Trails meander past forest glades, wildflower meadows, and shaded woodland pools. Our visitor's center is resident to many native and non-native birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles. There is a nature gift shop and library on the premise. Throughout the year we offer individually tailored programs for schools, scouts, home schooled groups or
individuals as well as seasonal programs such as bird house building or wreath making. We host birthday parties which include a hands on animal program and lollipop scavenger hunt. During the summer our popular nature camp takes place with our antique barn being the headquarters! Every year our Great Egg Hunt, always the Saturday before Easter, is a must for families. Over 5,000 eggs are decorated as animals and placed along our trails! In the fall we may have a story teller up at our fire ring or a family fall festival. All the seasons at Capen Hill are beautiful and is a great place to unwind, relax, and take in the nature around you!
