This is the perfect family-friendly destination. Our young children loved exploring the exhibits inside the building, feeding geese & fish at the pond, and playing at the Nature Scape. The onsite pavilions provide the perfect spot for a picnic lunch.

What a great place for anyone who likes to be out in nature to go to. They also have educational classes and everyone is so informative. They also will work with small groups like scouts for badges

This Center has done a super job of preserving some local land that might have otherwise been strip mined or turned into a landfill. They have a couple of lakes and streams with walking paths. A bit of up and down, but not too strenuous....More
