The Natural Heritage Center was established to help the locals to learn about the value and importance of natural heritages through exhibitions and education on the methodical study of natural heritages and national monuments.
Fossils(i.e. dinosaurs' eggs and footprint), animal specimens (eagles, asiatic black bear), botanical specimens (i.e. jondo-ri pine tree) and many other natural heritages are exhibited. With guidance by professional researchers, youths can take the opportunity to learn more about natural heritages through hands-on activities, video education and many other experiential programs that are only provided by the Natural Heritage Center.
Through academic exchanges with the UNESCO, international organizations specializing in natural heritages ( Natural History Museum) and other research institution are in progress of developing more exhibitions on display.
The center has an outdoor learning space where an eco pond, specimens of the dinosaurs' footprints and wild plants can be found. It is also home to various botanical specimens such as polyphylla of jeongipum pine tree including miseon namu (Abeliophyllum), Korean necklace pod (Echinosophora), insular abelia and more treasured species.
