  • Small, old, and could use some work. However, it was fun to visit and show my children local animals. They are providing a great service and the discovery center was very nice. The nature trail was very steep and we were not able to use our jogging stroller on it. Two birthday parties were being held here and looked like the children would have fun.
  • We went there again for their annual "Flight to Freedom" benefit event. It was a success as usual with the release of the rehabilitated Owl at the end of the evening. The Buffalo Bill's Brewery stand (one of the sponsors? of the evenings program) showed up late with some 6 packs of pumpkin and orange flavored beer? Geezz!!! Sorry to say that the Food vendor going downhill too... Tiny desert/appetizer plates for dinner! Go to dinner before the event next year! Or, bring your own picnic basket? Enjoy the animals, the program and the auction for the evening.
