Millbrook Marsh Nature Center

548 Puddintown Road

Millbrook Marsh Nature Center, operated by Centre Region Parks & Recreation (c/o Centre Regional Recreation Authority), is a 62-acre site consisting of a 12-acre farmstead area (with a large bank barn and several outbuildings), plus an adjacent 50-acre wetland area. The 50-acre wetland area also hosts a Conservation Easement between Penn State and ClearWater Conservancy of Central PA. Formerly known as "Farm 12," the tract was leased on a long term basis from Penn State University starting in 1997 for $1/year. The center provides an opportunity to present to Centre Region residents three important themes from the site: environmental, agricultural, and historical. The center is pleased to host many groups (all group visits must be scheduled in advance).

Fantastic and easily accessible boardwalk. Wetlands are one of my most favored ecosystems, probably because they are dynamic, and generally inaccessible. However, this boardwalk provides great access through the Millbrook Marsh, bringing you access to what would otherwise be difficult and destructive access to the marsh. There is plenty to see and it feels secluded despite being so close to University Park. I highly recommend taking a stroll through the wetland on the boardwalk.
