Jarrett Nature Center Overview
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.
