Welcome to Charlotte's Quest Nature Center



Charlotte's Quest is getting an update - and you can help!

After over 20 years of service to the community, our nature center is showing its age. Thanks to funding through BGE's Green Grants program and additional investments from the Town of Manchester, we are in the process of a building update and sustainability overhaul! Improvements will include energy-saving LED lighting, new displays and educational materials, fresh paint, and everything in between.

Don't you want to be a part of the fun?! Show your support for our local gem by volunteering a few hours with us on Saturday, October 28 from 1-4pm. Work will include tasks like painting, gardening, weeding, trail work, etc. Children ages 5 and up are welcome to participate as long as they are accompanied by an adult. All volunteers must pre-register:

Please click Volunteer to register for a Fall 2017 session.

Contact Holly Fowler at naturalist@charlottesquestnaturecenter.com or call 215-828-2354 with questions. Thank you for your support! Stay tuned for photos of our transformation!
