About Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve

Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve, Inc. is a nonprofit educational corporation supported by memberships, grants, donations and fund raising projects. The preserve and nature center are very much an integral part of the Rochester community, enjoying the support and volunteer help of Rochester area residents and businesses. Many volunteer hours have been and continue to be spent in developing and maintaining the preserve, teaching of classes, as well as in helping with various fund raising projects. Sixteen acres of wood, meadow and stream, nestled in the midst of one of Rochester Michigan's neighborhoods and only 5 minutes from most shopping and business areas, Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve provides a quiet oasis of natural beauty; the perfect opportunity to take a lunch-hour stroll through an enchanting winter wonderland or along a spring path rioting with color. Before you leave, don't forget to visit Dinosaur Hill's award winning nature center, the perfect setting for displaying nature's bounties and teaching her lessons. In the nature center you will find brochures describing the many programs Dinosaur Hill offers for groups, children, adults and families. Classes are small and are taught by experienced, professional staff.

“Dinosaur Hill Nature Preserve is an absolutely wonderful place to learn and work. I'm currently working on my education degree at Oakland University, and working at Dinosaur Hill gave me a chance to develop several vital teaching skills - Planning lessons, adapting on the spot, and more. Everyone who works in or with the office is incredibly welcoming; It is impossible to not smile when you see anyone who works here. The programs held by Dinosaur Hill are educational, authentic, and importantly very fun! I loved everything I did here, and I would recommend this experience to anyone.”

“The schedule was really flexible. Everyone I worked with was AMAZING and always taught me new things every day and challenged me to get out of my comfort zone. I was treated as an equal and not like a child. ”
