Founders Hall was the first public building of the Outdoor Discovery Center. It has been improved and expanded upon over the years to become our primary visitor center and education building. In addition to the classroom space, there is an extensive taxidermy collection including game and non-game animals and a number of native reptiles and amphibians in aquariums. This building also houses two Eastern screech owls. There is a visitor information desk and a small gift shop area. Items for sale include custom t-shirts, baseball caps, note cards, and a some books. Trail maps, current newsletters and other organizational literature can be found at the desk.
Founders Hall is open 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, Saturday 10 am to 4 pm, and Sunday 12 to 4 pm. The building is closed on major holidays including: New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
