About Cayuga Nature Center

The Cayuga Nature Center, with its WPA-era historic Lodge and 120 acres of woods, trails, gorges, and waterfalls, is the perfect setting for a beautiful and memorable celebration. The Nature Center is a wonderful place to host a variety of events: weddings, family reunions, birthday celebrations, and much more!

If you're looking for a rustic outdoor setting for your wedding day? The Nature Center is the place for you. Begin your ceremony next to our beautiful Butterfly Garden. Enjoy cocktails under a tent in the courtyard while guests play lawn games on the hill behind the Lodge. The kids (and adults!) will love exploring TreeTops, our six six-story tree house, to get some energy out before dinner. Move inside our charming 1930s Lodge to the Great Room for dinner and dancing. After dinner, guests will appreciate perusing our exhibits on the Sun Porch.

Our wedding package includes the following:

-5 hours of Lodge rental including use of the Great Room, Sun Porch, Courtyard, Education Room, and Kitchen
-Access to the entire grounds of the Nature Center including Butterfly Garden and TreeTops, our six-story tree house
-Additional time before and after the wedding for preparation and packing up
-Use of the Nature Center’s tables and chairs – helps keep your other rental costs down
