Learn about art and the environment while experiencing nature

The Sun Foundation Art and Nature Center offers tailored educational field trip experiences for school groups, scouts, church groups, seniors, home schoolers, and organizations. The Art and Nature Center features Illinois River Valley wetlands, an oak hickory forest, meadows, five miles of trails, and ancient inland sea fossil beds, making it an ideal setting to learn from nature.

We offer field trip programing in the areas of environmental education and art. Environmental education topics include Fossils and Rocks, Native American Indian Material Culture, Wetland Plants and Animals, Wilderness and Nature Skills, the Art and Science of Nature, and Aboriginal Survival Arts.
