Few states offer a wealth of outdoor resources that can match Michigan's. Some of the most spectacular landscapes in the state are just a short drive from Midland Homes for Sale, including one of our favorites, Chippewa Nature Center.
Encompassing more than 1,300 acres, Chippewa Nature Center is one of the greatest destinations in Michigan for outdoor adventure. Join our REALTORS® this fall to explore some of the amazing opportunities offered by this spectacular wild attraction.
Chippewa Nature Center was founded by the Midland Nature Club in 1966 and has only grown in the decades since. From its humble beginnings as a 198-acre parcel of land along the Chippewa River, the Nature Center has expanded to include 1,348 acres of forests, rivers, and wetlands. It's one of the greatest destinations in the Midland area for hiking, bird watching, and a host of other outdoorsy pursuits.
Be sure to make the Visitor Center your first stop. Here you'll find maps, exhibits, wildlife viewing areas, and friendly staff who can help you plan your adventure. From the Visitor Center, you can access Chippewa Nature Center's 19-mile trail system and start exploring some of these outdoor areas:
Chippewa Nature Center hosts a wide variety of special events and festivities throughout the year, many of which have become beloved annual traditions in the Midland area.
