Effective August 11, 2021, masks are required in all City of Asheville buildings.
As a park within the City of Asheville, the WNC Nature Center will require masks for visitors ages five and older in all indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.
When you donate to the Friends of the WNC Nature Center, you help the Nature Center connect people with the plants and animals of the Southern Appalachians.
The more we learn, the more we care. Your donation helps people of all ages appreciate and conserve this place we get to call home!
