The White Memorial Conservation Center located in Litchfield, CT houses one of New England's finest state-of-the-art Nature Museum. See a life-sized beaver lodge, learn about alternative energy, touch real animal fur, and test your bird identification skills, visit a fluorescent rock cave, and view nature through a digital macro-scope! Explore the Children’s Corner: books, puzzles, stuffed animals, and more!

The Nature Museum provides a glimpse of the natural diversity found outdoors on the White Memorial Foundation’s 4,000-acre wildlife sanctuary.

After you visit the museum make sure you return dayside to get outside! Enjoy beauty of this exquisite wildlife sanctuary, take a walk, or run, take a nap in the shade of a tree! View Connecticut's largest natural lake, the Bantam. Walk around the sparkling Little Pond's 1.6 mile boardwalk or enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the picnic tables scattered around the museum grounds. History buffs!

Got a smartphone with a QR scanner? Investigate the relics of one of New England's ice houses. The Icehouse trail's 8 QR code stops will provide the back story of this once, oh so important, resource.

Come on out to the beauty of Connecticut's Northwest corner, relax and inhale some of the finest air around, you will not be disappointed!
