In 1998, after two years of extensive volunteer efforts, Genesee County opened an Interpretive Nature Center in the County Park and Forest in East Bethany. Located ¼ mile from the Bethany Center Road entrance, the post and beam structure is host to hundreds of environmental and natural displays.
The Interpretive Nature Center has become a focal point for several community and school environmental education programs. The Center is equipped with a laboratory, classroom, several display rooms and a conference room. Visitors often view deer, rabbits, turkey and other wildlife from the elevated rear porch.
