Merry Lea Environmental Center

The Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College is just what the name implies. It is a 1,189-acre preserve has everything from wetlands, lakeshore, forest, prairies and meadows. You will see many wildflowers, frogs, snakes, tadpoles, birds, trees and so much more. It is bonded with spiritual roots and considers earth a gift form God. The center encourages,  “humans beings to cherish the earth and care for it with integrity, respect and humility.”


The Merry Lea Center is open 365 days a year and is open to the public for no admission fee. There are eight miles of hiking trails that you are able to explore from dusk to dawn. Merry Lea also has special events, which you can find on there website www.goshen.edu/merrylea.

The Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center has a wonderful teaching program for K-12th grade. Because it is part of Goshen College, the children, teachers and parents will be guided while keeping their ears and eyes wide open while they are exploring. Not all are willing to get their hands dirty while looking for bugs to view, however, just take a  breath of that fresh sweet smelling air and look around. God is so good to use, he provided us with the trees that house the birds of the air, the water that contains ducks, geese and herring.  Mud bogs where you will find toads, frogs and salamanders. While hiking, you will smell and see different plant life and flowers.
Schedule your next family outing to visit Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, located  on Wolf Lake, IN 46796
