Has great hands on activities for the little kids! The video was interesting as well. Not a large place, but nice.

My husband and I spent a pleasant hour here. The displays in the nature center were well done. Especially enjoyed the outdoor cages of local birds and bobcat.

Cheap and family friendly. Fun way for the kids to explore nature. Easy paths to walk and plenty to do both indoors and outdoors.

We've gone to the Nature Center several times and find a new activity to do every time. The outdoor animals and playground area are always a big hit with the kids. My favorite is the butterfly room where you can see lots of beautiful butterflies!...More
