NEST Rental Know Before You Go

Want to explore the NEST? Our open house hours are 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. select Saturdays. See the calendar below.

The beautiful Mosaic Center for Nature, Exploration, Science and Technology or NEST is located at the new Robinson Preserve Expansion. Tucked in at the corner of 9th Ave NW and 99th Street NW in northwest Bradenton, the NEST is a gorgeous multi-purpose space.  The building is managed by the Parks and Natural Resources Department's Volunteer and Education Division and is home to a variety of hands-on interpretive programming designed for all ages. 

In addition to regular free and low cost public programming, volunteer workdays, and passive recreation programs such as Tai Chi and yoga, the NEST is also available for private rentals.  Please review the following links to learn more about renting this beautiful site.
