The New Canaan Nature Center is a not-for-profit environmental education center and sanctuary dedicated to helping people of all ages better understand, appreciate and care for the world of nature.
 
The Nature Center was established in 1960 on the former estate of Miss Susan Dwight Bliss. This 40-acre site was given to the Town of New Canaan for the study of nature, horticulture and related sciences. The Town continues to own the land and buildings, and provides maintenance support. The Nature Center’s wide array of innovative environmental education programs generate more than 60% of its annual revenues. The remaining funds are raised through membership, private donations from individuals, foundations and corporations as well as through special events.
