Sarett Nature Center is home to hundreds of species of wildlife, both inside the Nature Center and out. We have several different habitats throughout Sarett’s property which provide homes to many different types of native species, and inside the Nature Center, you will also find over twenty species of animals to view up-close! With the addition of the butterfly house in 2011, visitors can now walk-through a netted garden, home to hundreds of butterflies in the summer.
Sarett property is home to many different species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and insects. One way we know this is through our trail cameras. We put our cameras in secluded spots of our property to catch glimpses of deer, coyote, turkey, beaver, raccoons, opossums, flying squirrels, bats, skunk, fox and many others!
Sarett is also a great destination for birders, where you can find many of the 300 species found in Berrien county! Check out our birding page for an interactive birding map of Berrien County and find all the great places to bird in southwest Michigan.
