The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education (SCEE) inspires meaningful connection between people and nature. We use our forests and fields as a living laboratory to foster appreciation, deepen understanding, and encourage stewardship of the environment.
Founded in 1965, the Schuylkill Center is one of the first urban environmental education centers in the country. It encompasses over 340 acres of privately held land in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philadelphia.
In addition to a huge variety of educational and enrichment programs for the adults, children, school groups and professionals, the Center supports a cutting edge environmental art program, a land restoration program and native plant nursery, and a wildlife rehabilitation clinic. For visitors the Center offers four miles of hiking trails, an indoor children’s Discovery Center, a sensory garden, an art gallery (and outdoor art installations in season), and a gift shop.
