The Susan and Jack Davis Nature Pavilion is a four-season, accessible building situated along our Central Pond Loop, overlooking the prairie. Inside, you will find the Donor Recognition Gallery, our annual art exhibitions, our programs and our event space available for booking.

For years, Fenner Nature Center has provided high-quality environmental programs and experiences for the mid-Michigan region. Today, with 60,000 park users, 12,000 program attendees and 5,000 festival goers annually, additional space was needed to continue to meet the the demand for low-cost programming and rental space. The Davis Nature Pavilion is designed to create space for community gatherings, special events, arts and education.

The Davis Nature Pavilion is made possible by our community’s support and the investment of donors and corporate sponsors listed on the Donor Recognition Gallery page.
