Houston Nature Center reviews
This was really cool. We got to see four owls, two of them up close. The staff was very knowledgeable and gave a very interesting and professional presentation. Worth the drive from La Crosse! more »
The small visitor building was interesting and the park is nice. But the natural playground, is simply wonderful! Our 6-year-old loved it, and frankly, so did his mom and dad! If you are in Houston... more »
Very impressed by the educational opportunities for young and old at the Nature Center in Houston, Minnesota. Very helpful and patient staff. Very much enjoyed the native plants and wildflowers in full bloom outside the facility.
I was there on 9/15 for the Swede Bottom 100 ride. Nice place. Showers there after the ride were a God send. Thanks for a great little park. Impressive, especially for a small town.
