Dahlem Conservancy

The Dahlem Conservancy is a non-profit organization that manages and funds the John and Mary Dahlem Environmental Education Center. We bridge the gap between people and the natural environment, and function as an outdoor classroom for school and public programs.

Enjoy the beauty of nature at the John and Mary Dahlem Environmental Education Center. Colorful gardens, lush forests, flower-studded grasslands, rolling meadows, marshes, and ponds blanket our nearly 300 acres and help highlight Michigan’s changing seasons. With five miles of hiking trails, including the 3/8 mile Nature for All Trail, unique exhibits and year-round educational programs, visitors can spend the day exploring the great outdoors and discovering the wonders of nature.

An indoor exhibit area, which includes live animals, is located within the visitor center, next to the Nutshell Gift Shop. The Nutshell is a great place to shop for the outdoor person and is an excellent source for nature-related books, clothing, bird-feeding supplies, jewelry and many other items, including fresh wreaths during the holidays.


The mission of the Dahlem Conservancy is to provide environmental education and outdoor experiences to the people of south central Michigan.
