About the White Memorial Conservation Center and the Bat Lady
The White Memorial Conservation Center, an Environmental Education Center and Nature Museum, is located in the heart of the 4000-acre White Memorial Foundation in the hills of northwestern Connecticut.
In 1964 the Center was established in the former home of Alain White and his sister, May. Their vision and generosity led to the formation of the White Memorial Foundation in 1913. A non-profit tax exempt organization, the Center was incorporated to add the goal of Education to the Conservation, Research, and Recreation purposes for which the foundation was formed.
The Conservation Center operates a Nature Museum with exhibits focusing on the interpretation of local natural history, conservation, and ecology, as well as a Museum Nature Store. Dormitory and Classroom Facilities on the property extend the opportunities for visitors to interact with the natural world.
The outdoor arena includes the wildlife sanctuary maintained by the White Memorial Foundation. The Foundation today comprises 4000 acres of fields, water, and woodlands, trails, campgrounds, boating facilities, and special areas for large outdoor educational and recreational gatherings.
The entrance to The White Memorial Foundation and Conservation Center is located off Route 202 between Litchfield and Bantam, Connecticut, approximately 2 miles west of Litchfield on Whitehall Road.
 The town of Litchfield is located in the central part of Litchfield County.

2 hours north of New York City (100 miles)

A Delicious Tip: Just before the entrance to the White Memorial Conservation Center on Route 202 (Bantam Road) from Litchfield center, there is a small group of stores on the left, on the corner of Bissel Road. There you will find The Dutch Epicure Shop, a ConneCT Kids favorite for many years. With their home-made pastries, gourmet cheeses, imported snacks, candy, cookies, crackers and cold cuts, this shop is a must-stop for anyone looking to add the crowning touch to their picnic at the White Center.
