Our Mission: Riverbend Environmental Education Center teaches environmental principles to children in Southeastern Pennsylvania through a direct connection with nature, inspiring respect for our natural world and action as aware, responsible and caring citizens.
Since 1974, Riverbend Environmental Education Center has been enriching the lives of children and families through engaging environmental education. From its beginnings as a quiet nature preserve, Riverbend has evolved to a thriving center for environmental education that touches the lives of nearly 19,000 people annually.
Compassion, creativity, self-awareness and respect are just a few of the qualities inspired by meaningful outdoor experiences. What's more, children learn that they have the powerful ability to protect and nurture the natural world.Whether it is to participate in a public program or just to wander on our trails, a visit to Riverbend offers families a quiet place to relax, unwind and observe the wonders of nature.
