Cayuga Nature Center reviews
If you have children bring them here. They can learn a lot and see many interesting exhibits. The grounds are lovely and there are places to walk in the woods. more »
The tree house is certainly the star of the show here. We climbed to the top and told stories as if we were kids. It’s a real treat. more »
This is a user friendly, kid friendly, nature experience. It is well set up and very accessible. The tree house, built by high school students, is an impressive architectural achievement for kids and their teachers. The Nature center itself is interactive, well staffed and progressive in its approach to nature education for the public, again friendly for the young. My Brandon, Liam was looking at a butterfly in a terrarium and one of the naturalists there offered him the opportunity to release it. He jumped at the chance. That kind of thoughtful leadership is invaluable for youngsters. I highly recommend your visit to this enjoyable respite from our daily technological race. Go.
They need to have more alive animals. Great place to go for nature walks.
