Nature Interpretation Centre


NIC, with its well thought-out displays and captivating models is a gateway to the real treasures of SGNP which are its forests and the myriad life forms that live within. Exhibits here depict different aspects related to wildlife and biodiversity with a stress on the need for their conservation. The quite little garden outside is a haven for butterflies and also is developed as a display for some of our uncommon medicinal plants.

The NIC is like a road map to SGNP’s tremendous biodiversity. On the pathway to the center, sits a model representation of the park, beautifully depicting the geographical layout and forming an actual gateway into the urban wilderness of SGNP. The center is a mix of illustrations, models and photographs, interactive media all coming together to inspire, educate and inform, not just aspects of the biodiversity but also the factors that threaten it.

Playing the vital role as an educational arm of the SGNP management, the NIC organizes activities like nature trails, bird-watching excursions, butterfly watches, treks and overnight camps led by experts.

NIC specializes in organizing guided nature excursions into the SGNP wilderness; though prior intimation or booking helps in better arrangement of your trip.
