COVID-19 UPDATE: The Harris Center building will be closed to visitors until further notice. Our trails and grounds remain open.
Tracing our Tracks
The Harris Center is the land, the plants and wildlife who live on the land, and the realized vision of a place that inspires understanding and respect for the natural world. But it is more than that. The Harris Center is also the people who have loved and nurtured this vision.
In celebration of the Harris Center’s 50 Anniversary, we’re sharing portraits of 50 people and organizations who helped make us who we are today. It’s impossible to honor everyone who is or has been an integral part of the Harris Center, but together these portraits paint a picture of who we’ve been, who we are now, and who we hope to become.
Click on the photos below to learn more about each remarkable facet of the Harris Center’s human history, and check back again soon — we’ll be releasing one new “face” each week during our Anniversary Year!
