Kay Environmental Center

At first glance, a visitor is struck by the beauty and size of the meadows and the many flowering trees, shrubs and wildflowers that surround the Elizabeth D. Kay Environmental Center. A looping trail through one of the fields allows a closer look at the various plant, bird and mammal species that reside in the meadow habitat.

Among the many habitats at the Kay Center is a stately hardwood forest with trails that wind down through a breathtaking Eastern Hemlock forest to the edge of the Black River. Visitors can also follow the river to historic Cooper Gristmill; however, a permit must be obtained at the Kay Center or from the Park Police to walk the environmentally sensitive trails leading to the Black River Gorge.
