Surrey Nature Centre
Nestled beside Green Timbers Urban Forest, the Surrey Nature Centre is a place for kids and adults to explore nature in Surrey. To add to your fun, pick up an activity backpack or fishing rod from the front desk.
The Surrey Nature Centre will be closed September 30 and October 1.

Uncover the secret word of decomposers in the Nature Centre's exhibit. From fungi to bacteria and insects, decomposers recycle nutrients and allow the forest to thrive. Without decomposers, life as we know it wouldn’t exist. Come check out some giant mushrooms and creepy crawlies galore!
