  • We really enjoyed hiking the trails at Kalamazoo Nature Center. Quite a range of difficulty levels to suit anyone's preference and ability including handicap accessible trails. Beautiful views of flowers, forests, streams, a covered bridge and more. Plus indoor exhibits. Got to see an adorable owl up close.
  • Beautiful place to see and learn about nature. I have been going here since I was a kid and it is always a treat. There are plenty of trails that highlight different types of landscapes. There is also an interpretive center to explore. The adjacent historical homestead is also a great way to spend an hour or so. The weekends can be a little busy, but there is so much to do it hardly ever seems crowded. Nice way to spend a day.
