The Woodlands Nature Station is located in the Nature Watch Area of Land Between the Lakes; it serves as the hub of wildlife viewing and environmental education. The Nature Station offers daily programming featuring their rescued native wildlife including a bobcat, critically endangered red wolves, bald eagles, owls, coyotes, venomous snakes and more!

While you visit, you’ll also get the opportunity to explore native gardens and the local visiting wildlife. In August, the Nature Station Backyard receives 250 Ruby-throated hummingbirds daily. Or, visit in the winter and attend a naturalist-guided van or boat tour to spot a few of the 200 bald eagles that call LBL home in these chilly months.

The Nature Station also offers guided sunset kayak and canoe trips throughout the year as well as guided wildlife and wild edibles hikes throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
