Nature’s Rain Garden & Wetland Discovery Area
Get an up-close view of the benefits of wetlands at Heckrodt Wetland Reserve. The Nature’s Rain Garden & Wetland Discovery Area interpretive site demonstrates the value of establishing rain gardens in your own yard and allows you to get down to the water’s edge.
Our custom-designed reverse periscope allows visitors to experience “what a frog sees” at their level in a wetland. This site also provides a wetland experience — if time or weather doesn’t allow you to do a full hike.
The Nature’s Rain Garden & Wetland Discovery Area interpretive site is located adjacent to the nature center along the paved trail.
