Inspiring Appreciation and Stewardship of our Environment
Welcome to Pierce Cedar Creek Institute
Set on 742 acres in rural Barry County Michigan, Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, a mix between an environmental education center, nature center and biological field station, provides visitors with an opportunity for outdoor education and exposure to a blend of diverse habitats including wetlands, forests, marshes, streams, lakes, and prairies.
The Institute offers environmental education and sustainable land management programs to the community, edifying environmental stewards by communicating the core values of land conservancy, environmental responsibility and the pursuit of knowledge; provides undergraduate research grants and research partnerships with a consortium of area colleges and universities; and features nine miles of hiking trails open to the public, free of charge, from dawn to dusk year-round.
