A Brief History

The Tulpehaking Nature Center building was acquired in 2005 with NJ DEP Green Acres Development Grants to D&R Greenway Land Trust that were matched by Mercer County. It is owned by Mercer County and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission.

Because the ranch style home and property are located within the Abbott Farm National Historic Landmark, extensive archaeological surveys were required before renovations could begin. The Tulpehaking Nature Center opened to the public in October 2014.

Hours / Season of Operation

The nature center's hours are Sunday 12-4pm, Monday 10am-4pm, and other days by appointment for programs. (Call 609-303-0704).

Kelly Rypkema is the nature center manager. She may be reached at 609-303-0704 or at krypkema@mercercounty.org.
