DPR Environmental Education Centers

DPR operates two Environmental Education Centers at Twin Oaks Garden and Lederer Environmental Education Center. The centers offer environmental and gardening programs and workshops year-round for residents of all ages. Both centers feature community gardens which are open during the growing season. DPR's Environmental Education Centers and community gardens are open to anyone who shares an interest in the environment and a desire to learn about the wonders of nature.

The Lederer Environmental Education Center is an environmental science resource center designed to provide District residents and visitors with multiple learning experiences about nature, gardening, animals, weather reporting and forecasting, and the preservation and protection of the environment.
