Seven Ponds Nature Center

A Nature Sanctuary and Environmental Education Center


Welcome to Seven Ponds!

Fifty years ago, Seven Ponds Nature Center was created to provide a special setting for anyone seeking an understanding and appreciation of nature. Over the years, more than a half million people, representing four generations, have participated in the center’s programs. Several hundred thousand school children have walked our trails. All have been enriched by the experience. Today, Seven Ponds’ role as a nature sanctuary, environmental education center, and peaceful retreat is as important as ever.

The center is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving southeastern Michigan.
