Meigs Point Nature Center is an exciting and vital environmental learning center open to all ages. It is located at Hammonasset Beach State Park — one of the most beautiful sites within the Connecticut State Park system. Here you can enjoy more than 50 species of local wildlife, hands on displays and fantastic views.

Many programs are offered daily including nature walks, reptile and touch tank presentations. The Nature Center is host to a variety of native animals, including: turtles, snakes, amphibians, crabs and fish. Most of the animals at the Nature Center cannot be released because of previous injuries or for other reasons, but are well cared for.

In season, there is also a Touch Tank that allows some of the smaller wonders of the sea to be brought inside for up-close viewing and learning. All creatures in the Touch Tank are regularly rotated and then returned to Long Island Sound.
