Environmental Education

Most of our Environmental Education Programs are offered at the Discovery Center up on Mill Mountain.

Join our Environmental Education staff at the Mill Mountain Discovery Center and experience the nature of Roanoke!

The Discovery Center hosts an array of outdoor and environmental education opportunities that get adults and children into the great outdoors to experience the natural habitat that resides right in our back yard. Bring your kids in to experience some hands-on educational displays and as well as burn some energy on our playground, hike our mountain trails or stroll up the Greenway to visit the Roanoke Star.

“My son got to participate in the Maple Tapping program this weekend at Mill Mountain and I wanted to share with you how great of an experience it was.  Grace was wonderful both on the phone and in person and Christine did an excellent job with the presentation and leading the group.  It was an honor to participate in the program and reminded me again of how great the city of Roanoke has become.  Please, please, please….recognize these two ladies appropriately for the work they have done and are doing.  They make this a better place to live.”
