Osprey Wilds Environmental Learning Center

A nonprofit organization

We believe that a healthy environment starts with and is perpetuated by a personal connection to it, and we have been committed to that goal for over 50 years.  Learn more about our impact and hear from our visiting students in the video below! 

Osprey Wilds provides life-changing experiences that lead to more informed decision-makers through a variety of environmental learning experiences for people of all ages, with programming in natural history and science, team-building, adventure programming, wildlife, energy, outdoor skills, and human history.

During the pandemic, our program revenue dropped by nearly 90 percent. Things are moving in the right direction, but it will be some time yet before we see a return to normal for our on-campus programs and the revenue that flows from them.
