Spencer Crest Nature Center

Spencer Crest Nature Center at Corning Community College started as a series of nature trails in 1966 by Jack Wills and John Brennan, biology professors at the college. The idea took off and by the late 70's and interpretive center was desired. Community fundraising and grant monies made possible the opening of Spencer Crest Nature Center in 1981 where John Denver was a featured guest. The nature center was designed by David Sellers and incorporated many alternative energy systems and was to celebrate man's relationship to nature. Today the nature center building is open five days a week to the public during the school year. 7 miles of trails are available to hike and explore our native hardwood forests dawn to dusk every day of the year.
