Autrey Mill Nature Preserve & Heritage Center
The Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association operates the preserve and historic buildings and provides all the environmental, heritage and event programming offered to the public. The Visitor Center houses over 30 different animals you can learn about and offers a unique educational experience in the Living Lab, an area for kids to learn about the world around them, with little guided instruction.
The beginnings of Autrey Mill date to a 1988 grassroots effort by community advocates to save the woodlands from development prevent the loss of the old mill site, and halt the demolition of historic buildings situated on the property. In 1989 the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association, Inc. was formed as a non-profit organization to operate, protect and improve the preserve.
