A non-profit organization, Brushwood Center seeks to build an environmental ethic in our region by offering multiple points of entry for the public to connect with nature. Through innovative programs presented against a backdrop of stately woods where pre-settlement flora and fauna still linger, Brushwood Center contributes to the development of an environmentally literate citizenry that has the skills, knowledge and inclinations to make well-informed choices that consider future generations.
Brushwood Center holds that environmental education is a lifelong endeavor that extends beyond science to embrace human interaction with nature and its expression, including literature, music, photography, dance and other fine and performing arts.
Brushwood Center offers a robust schedule of public programs, special events, lectures and art exhibitions throughout the year based on annual themes.
Brushwood Center is located in Deerfield, Illinois on Riverwoods Road between Half Day Road (Route 22) and Deerfield Road, just west of the I-94 Toll Road.
