Powdermill Nature Reserve is the environmental research center of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

Established in 1896 by industrialist Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919), the Carnegie Museum of Natural History is one of the nation’s leading institutions in studying and exhibiting material related to the natural sciences.

Powdermill was established in 1956 to serve as a field station for long-term studies of natural populations — their life histories, behaviors, and ecological relationships.

The Reserve is used by scientists to monitor and study changes in the local ecology and wildlife populations. It has served as a refuge for many plants and animals which, as a result of habitat destruction, are now becoming increasingly rare in our region as their habitats are destroyed.

Varies per season; call for information.
