The Warren E. Fox Nature Center is the headquarters for environmental education within the Atlantic County park system and also serves as the information office.  Located in the Atlantic County Park at Estell Manor on Route 50, the Nature Center was named in honor of Warren E. Fox, an active environmentalist who contributed much of his life to better understanding the New Jersey Pinelands.

Warren E. Fox Nature Center

The Nature Center was built in the early 1980s using an architectural design that incorporates passive solar heating. There are offices, an auditorium for class and public lectures, and public restroom facilities. It also offers impressive indoor exhibits, brochures, a wide collection of taxidermy mounts, insect and plant displays, along with a wide range of historic information focused on the local area.  

To find out what kind of environmental programs we offer, see the Parks Newsletter. Our programs change with the seasons.
