Since opening its doors in 1997, the HNC has steadily increased its visitors to almost 20,000 each year. Every year the center presents approximately 450 programs, including 200 school programs that allow over 4,400 students annually to enhance their academics with nature discoveries. In 2010, the Foundation began raising funds for the Nature Exploration Area. Foundation supporters also provided funds for the River Overlook and the School Bus Scholarship Project which allows 50 classes annually to participate in nature field trips. Future projects include finishing the Nature Exploration Area with 2 Tree Houses and a Sky Walk to connect them.
