Dahlem, Jackson’s Nature Place, provides environmental education and outdoor experiences to the people of South-central Michigan.  People of all ages benefit from the year-round programs at Dahlem. Our beautiful trails are open to the public every day from dawn until dusk. Come experience the diversity of plants, animals, and ecosystems located in Dahlem’s nearly 300 acres of conserved land.
