Visitor Information

Have you visited Lichterman Nature Center? Located in the heart of metropolitan Memphis, the Center features exciting new exhibits, lush gardens featuring native wildflowers and trees, and a tradition of excellence.

Stow it, don't show it! Please remember not to leave valuables in your vehicle. The Nature Center does not assume responsibility for losses.

According to the laws of Tennessee, it is illegal to rehabilitate native wild animals without a permit from the state. An additional federal permit is required to rehabilitate birds. It is illegal to possess native wildlife as pets

Lichterman Nature Center does not maintain state or federal rehabilitation permits. As a result, the Nature Center cannot accept any live or injured animals.
