Description:

Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center (DPNC) is nonprofit environmental education center in Mystic, CT. DPNC offers eight miles of walking, hiking and birding trails within a 300-acre nature preserve.

In 2013, we acquired 45 acres of property on Greenmanville Avenue in Mystic called the Coogan Farm. This new preserve is being transformed into a wildlife habitat with trails that connect to the Nature Center. Many other programs and projects are being offered and planned there as well. 

The Nature Center also offers a natural history museum and small meadow theater, live reptiles, amphibians and birds of prey; a state-licensed preschool; summer camp programs; paddle trips and educational programs for all ages. Picnic areas and gift shop also on site.
