You can find the Ashland Nature Center at 3511 Barley Mill Road, Hockessin, DE. It costs just $5 for adults to enter, and $3 for children. As always, Members of the Delaware Nature Society get to enjoy the grounds for free.

The trails around the Nature Center are open from dawn to dusk year round, and the center itself is open from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm each day from April to November. They do close on some holidays, so if you’re planning a visit, please double check with the Delaware Nature Society.
