About

The mission of the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center (KPNC), is to provide programs, experiences, nature trails, and natural habitats for education, study, and relaxation for students and citizens of all ages, while creating an atmosphere of discovery and stewardship toward our natural world.

Since its endowment to the Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center has continued to evolve into a first-class discovery and nature center with exciting programs offered throughout the year. In keeping with its mission, the KPNC fosters a greater sense of appreciation and understanding of our environment with many nature-based programs such as:

  • Discovery Hikes
  • Nature Walks
  • School Programs
  • Youth Camps
  • Adult Workshops & Classes
  • Educational Exhibits
  • Wildlife Study Programs
