Harriet Alexander Nature Center

Come see the fabulous indoor tree feature
and explore the trails!

The Harriet Alexander Nature Center (HANC) is an oasis nestled within the borders of Roseville’s Central Park. 
On the grounds there is a boardwalk and trails that circulate through 52 acres of marsh, prairie and forest habitats. Come explore the marsh on the newer boardwalk sections which are linked to the older sections, making for a nice long double loop. During your visit to HANC you might find migrating songbirds, towering prairie grasses, rows of painted turtles, cottontail rabbits, or even a river otter!
