The Elachee Nature Science Center is located within the 1,500 acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, which is one of the largest protected greenspaces in the state. The forest preserve contains 13 miles of hiking trails featuring rolling topography and four diverse habitats - woodland, lake, stream and wetland. The trails wind through pine forests, hardwood ridges, streams, and wetlands with sightings of deer, birds and beautiful blooms and greenery. The preserve serves as a plant and animal sanctuary and an ideal outdoor classroom.
In 1999 Elachee Nature Science Center gained accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) as an outdoor environmental education center.

Althought there is no admission fee to use the trails, the Elachee Nature Center maintains these trails as a private, non-profit organization relying on donor support. If you wish to make a contribution, donation boxes are located at the overflow parking area and at Chicopee Lake.
