Come to the Friends of Wertheim Nature Store. We have many beautiful, and educational nature related items to fit your shopping needs.
The Friends of Wertheim Nature Store is conveniently located in the Visitor's Center as you come in for your visit. The products we carry are educational, interesting, and help to encourage enthusiasm for our local environment.
We have puzzles, kites, and plush animals and birds that have realistic sounds. There is a wide selection of children's books that stir the imagination. You can find a variety of little items like mini-flashlights, plastic bugs and butterflies, organic Chapstick, and other small keepsakes of your visit.
We have a large selection of guide books for animals and birds, bookmarks, and Endangered Species Chocolate. Of special note we have local environmentalist Dennis Puleston's books: A Nature Journal, Blue Water Vagabond, and The Gull's Way. Some of his beautiful art work is available on magnets and 6x6" tiles. We have other book selections by local area authors as well. There are earrings and pewter pins, all unique and made in America.
When your shopping is done, you can purchase one of our canvas tote bags to bring it all home. If you are a member of the Friends of Wertheim you receive a 10% discount
