Rand Nature Centre

Rand Nature Centre

Acquired by the BNT in 1992, the Rand Nature Center, comprises 100 acres of natural beauty in the heart of Freeport. A 2,000 foot trail winds through through pine barrens, native and exotic coppice and lead out to a freshwater watchable wildlife pond and a native plant arboretum. A birders paradise, the center houses a variety of bird species that can be seen year round. Peak birdwatching season is from October to May, when winter residents and migratory birds arrive.

You can take selfguided walks through the nature preserve, view rotating visual art, cultural and educational exhibits, the Glory Banks Gallery, and learn about the variety of historical Bahamian plants and trees. Some of them that early inhabitants used in their daily lives include the Uniola, a springy grass that was stuffing for mattresses; the sharppointed agave leaves that served as needles and thread; and love vine, a powerful aphrodisiac.
