Larry F. Scott Nature Trail
The Delaware Museum of Natural History’s Larry F. Scott Nature Trail is a mile-long path through the woodlands and wetlands behind the Museum. There are two loops: The Yellow Loop features a bird blind with slatted sides that visitors can see through to observe wildlife. There is also an outdoor classroom used for outdoor projects during school tours and Summer Camp, as well as a fire pit. This loop has benches and is handicapped and stroller-accessible.
The Red Loop goes through wooded areas and into wetlands further back along the Museum’s property. An Eagle Scout built a bridge over the wetlands so visitors can take an up-close look at vegetation. A big overturned tree along the way is a stopping point to look for spiders, snakes, and other creatures living in the roots.
There are newly-installed maps or interpretive signs along the trail, and visitors are invited to explore the maintained trail and learn more about the environment.
