    MISSION STATEMENT

    The mission of the Jarrett Nature Center is to provide environmental education for the students of The Hatboro-Horsham School District, to protect and nurture an on-campus wildlife habitat, and to promote understanding, respect and responsibility for our environment through a supportive collaboration of educators, students, parents and community members.

    The Jarrett Nature Center is Hatboro-Horsham School District's Outdoor Classroom. It is a living laboratory where students engage in hands-on learning and exploration experiences with their classroom teachers. It also provides a setting for the community to enjoy a variety of activities including nature walks, birding, and photography. Throughout the year, a variety of programs are offered to the community, often in cooperation with the Horsham Library.

    A half-mile walk around the JNC will take visitors past a variety of habitats including the pond, woods, meadow and wetlands. Interpretive signs illustrated by student artists point out important features of these and many other places of interest along the way.

    We invite the community to visit and experience the small piece of nature tucked within Horsham. In order to best preserve the nature center and respect the wildlife who live here and the students visiting, we ask kindly that you not bring your dog(s).

Announcements

  • Green up day April 27, 2024

    Join us anytime between 9am and 12pm on Saturday, April 27th for Green-up day at the JNC! We have lots of mulch that needs to be spread throughout our trails, some multiflora rose to remove, and tending to some recently planted trees. Kids can help clear up fallen sticks and collect trash. Bring your gardening gloves (we have extra to share if you don't have any), sunscreen, bug spray, and your water bottle. We'll provide the tools!
