Who we are

Created as a place where anyone from any background or ability can learn about the natural world.

Familiar favourites such as meerkats and owls are just some of the animals found here alongside the strange more unusual creatures such as zorilla and tenrecs, there is lots to discover.

Back in 2016 the team behind Cedars Nature Centre took over pets corner from Broxbourne council and created Cedars Nature Centre.

It took over a year to complete but in August 2017 Cedars Nature Centre opened to the public and we have loved every day since!
