Please note: the Larry F. Scott Nature Trail is closed indefinitely due to damage from the recent storm.
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 wildlife blind with slatted sides to observe wildlife. There is also an outdoor classroom used for school tours and summer camp, as well as a fire pit.
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.
