Went there with my child's class field trip. The staff were knowledgeable and the displays we're well kept and the animals were healthy. They have a large area also with a nice example of a deer resistant garden and nature trail. It looks like they have summer camp classes that could be very interesting for grade or middle school age children.

Awesome nature center! My kids (2 and 5) loved it! Staff was so friendly and full of great facts! Went to nature tales, highly recommend! They read a book, did a craft, had snack and got to pet a snake! So fun! Thank you!

We like coming out here to see some of the animals as well as walk the trails. Staff always enjoy seeing the kids and teaching what they know.
