A team of volunteers provide explanations for the environment. The nature center utilizes ecology diagrams, models, written language, and interaction in order to explain Fushan's ecology. 
The garden boasts a wide range of plants and animals. Animals include Reeve's Muntjac, wild boar, mandarin duck, and more, while plants include camphor, Fagaceae, gymnosperm, Indian azalea, bamboo, aquatic plants, and herbaceous plants, just to name a few, for a total of 7000 plant species.
