Forsyth Nature Center

Welcome to the Forsyth Nature Center

Welcome to the Virtual home of the Friends of Forysth Nature Center

The Forsyth Nature Center has been growing and changing for many years.

The Mission of the Forsyth Nature Center is “To foster the exploration of the natural world in and around our community through educational programming and contact with flora and fauna at an interpretive facility”. The Forsyth Nature Center has 24 animal exhibits and a dozen gardens that contain a variety of native flora found right here in the Hudson Valley.

 The Nature Center has been a fixture in the Kingston Community since 1936 and continues to grow and expand with the help of the community through its Friends of Forsyth Nature Center, a not for profit group and with the support of the City of Kingston Parks and Recreation Department.
