Parker Room

Capacity: 100 lecture style or 40 conference style

Space isn’t a problem in the Parker Room, Powdermill’s largest meeting room. Ideal for workshops and scientific seminars, the room comes complete with a data/video projection system, DVD and CD players, wireless microphone, lighted podium, big display screen, and a built-in servery.


Permanent Exhibitions Area

The Permanent Exhibitions Area is a multipurpose space showcasing Powdermill's natural history and research exhibitions. Its living stream offers a look at life in Powdermill Run, and the interactive bird call touchscreen is fun for all ages. Careful, because the deck’s beautiful wooded backdrop may be a little distracting.

Outdoor Spaces

The spacious deck is open to your ideas. Surrounded by gardens and woods, this space is all about the possibilities. Nearby, you have access to an outdoor, natural-stone amphitheater at the head of the beautiful Black Birch Trail.
