Exploring Zoos and Nature Centers in Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley

Enjoy panoramic river and marsh views, plus a 10-acre ornamental garden, at the DuPont Environmental Education Center, or go hawk spotting at the Ashland Nature Center’s Hawk Watch Hill.

For animal encounters with more exotic creatures, you'll find capybara, lemurs and red pandas all living inside the Brandywine Zoo. This nearly 100-year-old zoo, located just minutes from downtown Wilmington, offers family programs year-round.
