If you like nature, This little spot has a beautiful wildflower garden, walking trails in the woods behind it, and some great programs about nature on Cape Cod.

There are many opportunties for learning and enjoying the gardens, the jam kitchen and the beautiful setting. Really old Cape Cod.

We enjoyed visiting the nature center and jam kitchen. Some interesting history here. We also hiked the grounds and purchased some amazing jam. We would visit again.
