The Endla Nature Centre is housed in the old swamp school building in Tooma Village, Jõgeva County. From 1928 until 1944, drainage of swamps and growing of vegetation were taught in the school. Now, when there is a nature reserve, focus is on valuing the swamps. The nature centre organises nature studies and camps for children as well as adults. There is also a exhibition which introduces Estonian swamps and the values of Endla Nature Reserve. It is a good place to park your car and start a hike in the bog. In order to see the exhibition, obtain information on hiking trails or call a guide to the trail, you have to make an appointment.
