White Deer Park is a predominantly passive park that is sensitive to the environment, preserves wildlife habitat, and is aware of its impact on surrounding areas. The park provides educational opportunities, promotes health and wellness within the community and serves as an example of environmental responsibility and stewardship.

Located in White Deer Park, the Nature Center offers a variety of exhibits to explore. Say hello to our resident animals, Mac and Cheese the corn snakes, Sheldon and Sally our yellow-bellied sliders, or peep in at our Fowler's toad. An assortment of critters live at the nature center and we will continue to expand our collection. You can also learn about local North Carolina species through our mounted specimen and skulls collection or visit one of our hands-on and educational programs. We offer a variety of fun programs throughout each month.
