Nature Center

The Lyon County Nature Center is an environmental education building used for schools, civic groups, nursing/retirement homes, 4H, scouts, youth groups, daycares, and general public programs. It has viewing areas with various animal specimens (live and mounted), interactive displays, and artifacts. Through the Nature Center, we are now able to share our animals and artifacts with the public.
