Salt Marsh Nature Center

Map & Directions 3302 Ave. U
Brooklyn, NY 11234


Village Voice's Description

Definitely one of the borough's most beautiful nature hideaways is the recently opened Salt Marsh Nature Center in Jamaica Bay. Hidden at the end of a seemingly typical industrial Brooklyn backdrop is an engaging grassy-marsh landscape with rows and rows of low trees and a plethora of indigenous birds such as black skimmers, bufflehead ducks, egrets, and blue herons. The center (a unique three-sided building with an amazing open-courtyard patio) offers tours, lectures, nature-video screenings, hands-on ecosystem studies, a mile-long nature trail, arts and crafts, and storytelling for children.

Hours: Daily dawn-dusk
