Resource Center 1

The Gene Stratton-Porter Environmental Resource Center is a destination for visitors of all ages who want to learn more about birds, plants, insects and archaeology. These four subjects are highlighted to reflect Indiana author Gene Stratton-Porter’s great loves in the natural world. Enjoy watching birds through the spectacular viewing window overlooking the GSP Wildlife Viewing area, learn more about moths and butterflies with giant models and professional collections, see native plants that you can plant at home to attract more birds and beneficial creatures, or touch replicas of ancient Native American tools such as arrow heads and blades. All housed in the GSP Carriage House Visitor’s Center, the Environmental Resource Center will connect visitors with Indiana’s natural heritage through exhibits, hands-on displays and technology.
