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).

Lovely beautiful tranquil quiet. These are all words to describe this haven right outside the city of state college. It's a large series of elevated wooden walkways that takes you through the marsh and bridges that take you over the many streams. There is also informational panels scattered around teaching about the marsh and all the fauna and flora that thrive in the environment. Is a perfect place to take a date or just a walk to see the beauty of nature. It's also almost a completely different place depending on the time of year you go but it's always spectacular.

I really loved the place. Quiet thrilling to walk alone in kind of jungle place. U can see ducks, murky, birds and three different springs. I heard that there are snakes too but didn't encounter one. So take care while walking in the jungle. It best suites for nature lovers. Extraordinary place to visit.

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.

Very nice hiking trails - some boarded, some grass. Nice setting with creeks meandering through the property, nice swampy area, and some grass plots. Small, yet restful, peaceful, pretty place. Good for a walk, short hike, sit and watch, relax. 62 acres.

Broadwalk trail in the woods. We saw a variety of birds and a few snakes sunning. A snail and frog. Cool place.
