Founded in 1965, the Schuylkill Center is one of the first urban environmental education centers in the country, with 365 acres of fields, forests, ponds, and streams in northwest Philadelphia. We work through four core program areas: environmental education, environmental art, land stewardship, and wildlife rehabilitation.

Our mission:

The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education inspires meaningful connections between people and nature. We engage with our forests and fields to foster appreciation, deepen understanding, and encourage stewardship of the environment.

Our vision:

As a leader in the next generation of environmental education, the Schuylkill Center creates a world where all people play, learn, and grow with nature as part of their everyday lives.
