The DuPont Nature Center is located in the Mispillion Harbor, where the Mispillion River and Cedar Creek meet and flow out into the Delaware Bay. It is a science-based educational and interpretive facility with interactive exhibits designed to connect people with the Delaware Bay’s natural history and ecology.

The DuPont Nature Center offers field trips, tours and other educational opportunities for schools and families. Field trip opportunities for schools and youth organizations are offered from April through September. The Nature Center’s "Life at the Edge" field trip program is geared toward children from pre-school ages through 5th grade. It focuses on horseshoe crabs, shorebirds and the Delaware Estuary with an option for a beach exploration component that takes place at nearby Slaughter Beach.

Other programs/topics may be conducted upon request. Structured tours of the Nature Center also are offered from April through September. Visitors will learn about horseshoe crabs, shorebirds and the Delaware Bayshore region as they are guided through the Nature Center’s exhibits.
