RMK Oandu Nature Centre

Keskus:RMK Oandu Nature Centre

The Oandu Nature Centre is situated in the northern Estonian recreation area, 3 km from Sagadi Manor towards Altja. In Oandu, visitors learn about the nature of the Lahemaa National Park and the different options for roaming the nature, as well as the growing and use of forest and timber throughout the ages. Another important theme in the events and programmes of the nature centre operating in a 150-year-old former forest district building is cultural heritage – traces of the life and work of previous generations. These themes are supported by film and slide programmes and exhibitions in the nature centre, the Cone Hut (Käbitare), barn and the old ice cellar. Oandu is a node of hiking and nature trails and the starting point of the 370 km Oandu-Ikla hiking trail passing through Estonia. The Oandu Nature Centre also organises environmental education programmes at the RMK Ojaäärse Nature House and the RMK Roela Cone Dryer/Museum, as well as in Tsitre, Harju County.
