Nature Center & Observatory Programs
The Nature Center & Observatory at Rifle Camp Park offers many programs and activities for all ages and interests.

The Nature Center is a small Nature & Science Museum and visitor's center.  It contains displays on a variety of science topics including a working seismograph that records earthquakes from around the world, wildlife exhibits, local rocks & minerals, astronomy and more.  A new dinosaur footprint display will be completed soon.  The nature center is open  9 AM to 5 PM, Fridays and Saturdays and on Tuesdays from 12:00 pm-5:00 pm.

The Astronomical Observatory is open for public viewing on selected dates during the year. If you have never looked through a telescope this is a wonderful opportunity to do so.

Please watch for the 2016 Astronomy night schedule which is coming soon.
