The Delores Fenwick Nature Center (DFNC) is Pearland’s newest environmental education facility. The Nature Center aims to provide hands-on educational opportunities to the community through programs, workshops, and field trips. A state-of-the-art classroom easily accommodates 50 guests and features a smart board system and built-in speakers to provide a deluxe indoor learning experience. An outdoor pavilion provides opportunities for outdoor learning and the attached picnic tables overlooking the ponds make for a nice sitting area.
