Since its humble beginning in 1983, Carbon County Environmental Education Center has grown into a premier outdoor and wildlife educational facility.
Housed in a converted 1920 dairy barn, the center is located on 70 acres of woodland, wetland, and meadow within Mauch Chunk Lake Park.
In a 1992 expansion, the building and grounds underwent considerable improvements. Yet the mission and motto remain the same: Conservation Through Education.
Today, CCEEC offers an array of discovery opportunities for school students, civic organizations, and the general public.
In addition to classrooms and educational displays, the barn also houses an environmental research and lending library, and a wildlife rehabilitation hospital.
