So much to learn, see, and do. The Nature Center is one of Kalamazoo's treasures! I remember going to classes there when I was small, and taking our daughter to classes, as well.

This nature center has great hiking trails for outdoor enthusiasts. It also has a lovely tropical room with pretty plants and nice indoor exhibits. My only complaint is that it's a bit overpriced for a day trip to a nature center. They do have annual...More
