Bethany Beach Nature Center

807 Garfield Parkway

On Saturdays from 10:30 to Noon, children gather at the Bethany Beach Nature Center for a fun-filled morning of indoor and outdoor activities offered year-round–one of the programs created through a partnership between the Town of Bethany Beach and the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays. Stories and projects have included learning about monarch butterflies, horseshoe crabs, Diamondback terrapins, bats and cow nose rays. In winter, the children decorate the trees for the birds and in summer plant and care for a garden to attract native butterflies and birds. There is no charge for the Saturday program, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

Inside the nature center, visitors can explore interactive exhibits, including “Our Inland Bays…A Delicate Balance,” which allows visitors to ‘virtually’ explore the Inland Bays watershed from the headwater streams, through the maritime forests, across the salt marshes to the bays using a state-of-the-art presentation called an I-Wall.

This was a wonderful place! I took my 4-yr-old. They offered a great outside scavenger hunt, and we were able to see a lot of wildlife. Cute little playground, too. If you have children, don't miss it!

Closed when we attpted to go, and no website with hours posted, so that was disappointing. My kids did have fun on the small playground and the short nature trail.
