  • Went on a rainy day and had a picnic. Plenty of covered picnic tables. Loved walking around afterwards to see all the beautiful animals.  more »
  • It was nice to get away from the crowded attractions and town. This is a great little place to see wildlife. So quiet and relaxing. Nice walk on trails to see flowers and nature. Bring bug spray.....  more »
  • My children and I visited during the fall open house. We went into the Star Lab, walked the grounds to view the animals and did a little rock painting. Over all it was very fun and educational.
  • My partner and I decided to go here after the new year started and we were both pleased with the experience. Both of us have such fond memories of the center from when we were kids in the 1980s on school field trips. The center is still as fascinating and tranquil as it was then. My favorite exhibit was definitely the aviary. It was the first time I ever saw a bald eagle up close. The lake and the carnivorous plant bog were so idyllic and eye catching; we didn't want to leave. It was like something out of a nature painting. The classroom was also a highlight with live reptiles. We are going to adopt an animal and will definitely be returning here often to donate and be with nature. It is almost like a gasp of fresh air in the midst of a chaotic city. We are both eagerly anticipating the bi-annual "Skywatch" event.
