About Us

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 12,000 people annually.  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.

Vision – Riverbend Environmental Education Center will be recognized as the model environmental learning resource for children in Southeastern Pennsylvania known for our superior educational programs and as a unique and significant destination.
