Indian Creek Nature Center

Back to Previous
Escape into the beauty and wonder of nature at Indian Creek Nature Center, featuring more than five miles of well-groomed trails through prairies, woodlands and wetlands. Just a short drive north of Iowa City, Amazing Space is Indian Creek Nature Center's Living Building Challenge Petal-Certified building and campus. It provides endless opportunities for exploration and discovery, and serves as your gateway to the beautiful natural world outside its doors. Relax in the Bird Room, explore at the interactive watershed table, see how much energy the solar panels are producing at the Energy Portal, and pick up some raw honey or maple syrup in our Creekside Shop. Whether you come to hike or snowshoe scenic trails, participate in a yoga class, or to let your children play in the Nature Explore-certified outdoor classroom, you'll want to come back again and again. Trails are open 365 days a year; indoor exhibits and Creekside Shop are open year round. Visit for full calendar of programs and events, rental information and seasonal hours.
