Welcome To The Nicandri Nature Center

Welcome To Nicandri Nature Center

The Eugene L. Nicandri Nature Center opened in May 2017. The nature center is located in Robert Moses State Park in Massena, NY and managed by The Friends of the Robert Moses State Park Nature Center. The center is owned and funded by The New York Power Authority.

The mission is to “engage visitors of all ages to promote public awareness, appreciation, and respect for the environment through exploration, education, and outdoor recreation.”

The center offers indoor exhibits on habitats found in the north country region, including large scale exhibit tanks with native fish and turtles. The exhibits are designed to be hands-on, fun, and educational for all ages. The center also connects to a 6 mile trail system that offers scenic hikes year round and groomed cross country ski trails in winter. 

The center prides itself on being welcoming to all and provides daily public programs in addition to school programming, scout group activities, day camps, and more.

"Engage visitors of all ages to promote public awareness, appreciation, and respect for the environment through exploration, education, and outdoor recreation."
