Indian Creek Nature Center

Indian Creek Nature Center consists of approximately 320 acres located within the Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area in the town of Canton in New York State. The center borders flooded lands between the Oswegatchie and Grasse Rivers designed to enhance waterfowl habitat.

The center contains approximately 7.9 miles of trails, including a handicapped accessible boardwalk trail through a marsh to an overlook with expansive views of Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area. Elevation ranges from 308 feet in the northern portion to 350 feet near the road in the southern portion.

All trails are free and open to the public.  Extensive efforts are underway to improve many of the trails including informational plaques and a guided nature trail.  Please enjoy the center as a wildlife haven with a myriad of amphibians, mammals, and resident and migratory birds. 

The center also offers a number of guided programs in the spring and fall.  Choose events above to view current offerings.
