Education Centers

Our Education Centers

The Forest Preserve District operates six education centers — Danada Equestrian Center, Fullersburg Woods Nature Education Center, Kline Creek Farm, Mayslake Peabody Estate, St. James Farm and Willowbrook Wildlife Center — at DuPage forest preserves, each with its own distinct exhibits featuring the county's natural and cultural history. Our education centers host scheduled programs for students, families and adults as well as activities for casual visitors.

The Urban Stream Research Center supports native freshwater mussels and endangered species conservation programs. 

View the centers before registering for a program.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, education centers may be experiencing changed hours of operation or closures and may have limited capacity for visitation. Please call ahead before visiting to receive up-to-date information on education center hours.
