Ebersole Environmental Center is a three-season, barrier-free residential environmental education and conference center located near the town of Wayland in beautiful West Michigan.

The Ebersole Center site is 158 acres of undisturbed natural beauty and exceptional biodiversity. Over a mile and a half of accessible boardwalk trails invite all people to enter wetland and forest areas alike, even those who use a wheelchair or have difficulty walking. While the Center campus is clean and modern, every effort is made to preserve natural areas in the most pristine state possible.

People enjoy the Center site for a variety of reasons. For school children it is a great place to study the natural sciences in a "hands-on, minds-on" way. For conference groups it is peaceful get away far from the hustle and noise of the city. For nearly anyone it is an inspirational place to connect with nature, to renew, refresh, or feel for the first time the wonder and awe of our natural world.

Ebersole provides opportunities for children and adults to get away from everyday distractions and discover a place of quiet relaxation to experience the natural world.

The Mission of Ebersole Environmental Center is: "to inspire learners of all ages to embrace nature, to engage their minds, and to acquire an awareness of responsible stewardship for our planet."
